It's here! The Chase is the print for March in my Fishy Bits! project
The codfish is a classic Newfoundland image. A codfish chasing a capelin still common especially in summer when the capelin are plentiful and the cod become too full to ever be tempted by a fisherman.
A few weeks each year recreational cod fishery is open and many people take to the water to get their quota of five fish daily. Last year the fish they came back with were huge - too large to sacrifice to me for printing. So I made my own! You can purchase your very own cod/capelin chase hanging on your wall by visiting my website
These are printed using oil based ink on Japanese papers. The piece here is printed on Masa paper.
I'm presenting the finished prints in various frame options over time to give you an idea of how they look framed.
This is a simple frame, 13" x 13" square with a 5" x 7" opening. The print area is 4" x 6" and the larger opening allows space for the signature and title to show. Sorry about the reflection of me ghosting the image, a hazard of photographing glass.
