Ever see those big vintage advertising signs painted on the side of old businesses and think, 'that is pretty cool'? Well so did I and after toying around with the idea in my mind for a while I came up with this new watercolor.
Based on a vintage Salmon cannery logo, I painted this brick by brick, adding in little details in every single stone. I took special care to add in the rust of age on various steel and metal parts that had been added to the building through the years.
I wanted to keep the salmon basic on this piece as it would have been on any hand done sign painted on the side of a building. The varied colors of brick made for an interesting look and I am eager to get started on the next painting in this style.

Watercolor On Paper
I found this one awhile back. I have a couple of pieces of old paper that have line items for Salmon. This one made me think of you. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/525513850243347402/
And by the way, I like your 'wall art'!
Just another beautiful piece of artwork from the master. Love it and the salmon I saw on Facebook. Thanks Joel.
