Rainbow trout were originally abundant only in North American rivers, then they were introduced to other waters around the world due to its delicious taste and challenge as a fighting game fish. Rainbow trout are generally a smaller cousin to the Salmon fish. They thrive in cold clear water. When you see the presence of trout in a river by you, it is a good indicator that the river is healthy, clean and pristine.

My rainbow trout illustration is done in watercolor.

There are a plethora of unique sports in the Rio Olympics, not quite as popular as, say, gymnastics or swimming. By going to NBC’s sister cable channels during the daytime, I have seen some of the less-covered sports such as shooting, table tennis and equestrian.

Equestrian was first featured in the 1900 Paris Olympics. It is the only sport where men and women compete with each other in the same event. Competitors are judged by the symbiosis with their horse, in dressage and/or jumping.

I drew a rider striding – a time when a horse is at its happiest, active in the wide open, using grandiose equus physical ability by leaping with precision through challenging obstacles.

Which sport do you like to see?

After a full life of many challenges, Salmon successfully returns home, back upriver where he was born.

Happy Earth Day!

Have you hugged a salmon today?

Our salmon has another near brush with danger.
Will he make it to his destination?

I wasn’t sure whether to include this moment in Salmon’s life, but I wanted to be as candid as possible. Sorry. I don’t want to be a downer. I just want to share awareness and the importance of sustainablility on our precious planet. The Monterey Bay Aquarium has a very good chart, detailing which kinds of fish are threatened and which fish are okay to harvest.

Down swoops a bald eagle. Salmon is not safe even from the air!
