18x24", mixed media on Canson

"This piece is about Salmon Canneries. In the early late 1800’s early 1900’s canneries were set up to take advantage of the incredible salmon populations (set up by U.S. Government). Without proper fish management the runs got smaller and smaller and so did the fish. The canneries employed native people but when the canneries stopped working, so did the workers. Tourists pass by these forsaken lands from giant mega tourism ships and eat nice meals and take pictures. Also the freckles are from the backs of salmon that return to spawn they are beautiful and they are only used during periods of great sweet smiles."
