A funny week; These past few days I've been thinking ahead to summer plans and decided I'd do a lot of fishing with my daughter, and do drawings and paintings journaling our outings for a possible book. I started (as usual) doing thumbnails in my sketchbook to get my eye and head in the game, so when afield I'm already looking for things that will make for interesting paintings.
And then I got an email from Harper's Magazine, interrupting my thinking, asking me to do a painting of.. a fish.
The Harper's story, which I would urge anyone concerned at all about our future to read, was about the possibly terminal decline of King Salmon.
