I met this Kirkland Artist, LeSan Reidmann, about 10 years ago when a painting similar to this one caught my eye. She said she was inspired when looking from a bridge into a stream where spawning salmon were swimming upstream. I love the symbolism, the autumn theme, the colors, everything. I almost bought it, but we had a to buy a new roof instead. Stupid roof. 10 years later, I still want it.
