These bright fish prints made by Rhode Island-based artist and store owner, Susan O'Donnell Kearney make me think of warm summer days. Made in a traditional thousand year old Japanese Gyotaku technique, it was a way fisherman could record the exact size and species of the fish they had caught. Called Nantucket Gyotaku, each print is an original one of a kind piece, hand-painted from real fish onto Japanese rice paper, canvas or linen. The prints, also customizable, capture the detail of the real deal in a way few techniques can, and the vibrant papers they are printed on bring a nautical appeal indoors. Perfect for warmer climes, the prints would look right at home in tropical interiors. They are available in Susan's Bristol, Rhode Island-based shop, Sue Casa, as well as a host of other chic boutiques.
