Artist Statement : "There's a little river in Fort Rupert where the salmon used to go once a year. We always waited to see them come home because it meant food for all. Even the eagles would join in, while the raven would scrounge around for whatever he could get. The best time to see them was at dusk. I did this print just to try something different." R.Hunt
