The Return from the Blue - Canvas

Born in the redd, a nest of eggs

Home to a little creek bed, stream or lake

Out to sea, battling free, years to return

Stronger, water-weary, fierce, the few

that return to place of their birth


Skeena salmon are born in many tributaries in BC's northwest, in creeks, streams, lakes. The challenges they face as they grow large enough to migrate to the coast, to the estuary at Lelu Island, are tremendous and daunting.

These warriors of the river are impressive and mighty in their fight to return to the creeks of their birth, after spending a few years in the ocean. Few make it back, fewer still will lay their eggs. This painting honours that fight, the instinct to return home, the drive to continue their lifeblood, the need to survive at all costs.
