"Salmon Swirl" Panel

Hello! Just returned from a great trip to Missoula, Montana. I was participating in the River City Roots Festival and it was lots of fun. Great energy, people, music and I sold lots which is always nice!

This panel is for the Mural Mosaic Kunamokst Project. My panel # is 203. Each artist works on an individual panel and all together they make a large mosaic.
