Illustration Friday - "Spotted"

This week's Illustration Friday topic was almost limitless in its possibilities, but I seem to have animals on my mind, so I immediately went there. It was tempting to just do another beetle, but I decided I needed to branch out a bit and I kept thinking of those spots on the sides of salmon, so a salmon it was. This is Oregon, after all.

I was a little bit thrilled at how well the paisley (yes, paisley again!) fabric worked for the fish. Here's a closeup.

  7. Oh my gosh! Mother Nature really missed the boat by not making all salmon paisley--your fish wears his paisles like they were always just meant for him. Really wonderful, Terry.

  15. Beautiful illustration. It's too bad more people don't notice the time that you spent on the exquisite patterns and textures.

    PS. I work out of Puyallup, a couple hours north of you.
