Description Just having a little fun with the 'King'. This pieace is sure to be a conversation point. It would look great in the office or in the game room.'The mighty Copper River is one of the longest and most rugged rivers in Alaska. Twisting and cutting deeply through the Wrangell and Chugach mountains, it's 300 mile stretch of pristine glacier-fed waters are riddled by hundreds of rapids. Every May, around the 15th, the first salmon of the season return to the rivers and streams of Alaska with the Copper River being one of the first. King, Sockeye, and Silver salmon embark on long journeys up the Copper River to spawn and lay their eggs. As salmon begin their last journey up this home stretch and prepare to mate, their feeding habits diminish. Because the Copper River salmon's journey is so long, they must store extra fat and oils in order to survive the long trip. This high fat and oil content is why Copper River salmon are recognized as some of the world's best eating salmon.' Source: http://www.fishermansexpress.com/copper-river-salmon.html
Lisa Whipkey, Seattle Member Since April 2007 Artist Statement I am a self-taught artist living in the Puget Sound area of Washington State. Yes, we get some rain here, but we drink lots of coffee to keep warm during the rainy season, so it's OK. To me, even the gray days are pretty and inspiring. The sunny days are gorgeous and, well... "The Bluest Skies I've Ever Seen, are in Seattle..." as the song goes.
I'm happily married with four bouncing baby "fur kids" (cats). I have been producing art in various mediums throughout most of my life - dance, music, painting, photography, jewelry design, etc.... I love them all!
The works in my ImageKind galleries showcase how my love for photography, painting and digital design all comes together to produce pieces that are typically photo based with some element of digital enhancement.
With a penchant for the dramatic, romantic and whimsical, and a strong desire to foster creativity by trying new things, my works are varied in style and content. I hope that there is something that will appeal to every taste and touch every viewer.
Thank you so much for visiting my galleries.
