Twin Chinook Salmon Bucks on their spawning Redds

One-of-a-kind original: $450
Image Size: 37” x 22"
I hand printed this Gyotaku, (or fish rubbing) directly from the Salmon on MA rice paper with Gamblin Fine Art Inks, in September of 2017. Signed with species, location, my signature, red chop and date.

The surface of this original artwork was sealed with an invisible matte UV coating, it was then applied with archival adhesives to a custom made 1.5” deep hardwood panel which has black enameled sides and mounting slots ready for hanging.

Limited edition print: $160

This image was printed on 90 lb matte watercolor paper with archival inks. I sign each of these with my signature and red chop in a limited edition of 12. 

The story: This 36 lb native chinook was caught on the Nehalem River bar, on the central Oregon Coast, by Gregg Tibbett’s in the Fall of 2017. I printed it both left and right in order to create the image of two salmon bucks on a Redd which is a depression in the gravel bed of a river or stream, made by the female hen salmon, in order to lay her eggs. The males compete with each other for who will fertilize her eggs with their milt.
