About This Print

A loan fishing boat sits on stilts. Black crows wander on the beach in the background, while a green crow (perhaps the angle of the sun or a truly peculiar bird) sits on the boat's bow. Done largely in shades of gray, the print comes alive with Kitaoka's reserved splashes of red, brown, green and yellow.
