Drawing Fish 52-38 Lamprey

Original status: Available, email me for details.

Swing by Jason's blog to see his see his Lamprey!

Tech Info- Watercolor, Gouache and Sharpie on oatmeal paper.

Jason suggested something a bit different this week! I really like his choice! He also forwarded an interesting article on the Pacific lamprey and how they are becoming threatened. Did you know that the lamprey dates back 450 million years! The lamprey is considered part of the First Foods with the Northwest Native Americans. The lamprey is native to both the Atlantic and the Pacific. Niagara Falls was a natural barrier until the Welland Canal was built in the early 1919 which allowed passage of the lamprey all the way to Lake Michigan.
