Planked Salmon

My good buddy, Ted Kellogg from Ashton, ID has been doing unique fish (and waterfowl) paintings/carvings for a number of years. I got an early Christmas present from him when this Atlantic salmon showed up at my door. He works on cedar planking and adds eye, mandible, fins, and tail separately. Ted's work is amazing- individual painted scales & spots, great color blending, with just enough added artistic license. This fish is 29" long.

Ted is a retired Forest Service fish biologist and his last project was an inventory of the native cuttthroat trout populations in the Targhee National Forest. His art is for sale at The Trouthunter in Island Park, ID, and he also does private work.
