Here is a painting of a perfect day fishing. Casting from the fresh, cold river water to find the perfect fish. The trees shadows are reflected in the pristine river. This is a fly fisherman's paradise on a quiet stream in Montana.
22" x 29". This watercolor is painted on 100% Cotton Arches Archival paper, sturdy 300 lb. weight for you to frame to match your decor. It is shipped flat to your home.
"As an artist, I see the eyes, broad colors, the impression of life and its surroundings. A memory, a recollection of an encounter, not too much detail, just enough to suggest what I thought I saw, just enough to let you, the viewer, fill in the details from your own memories. The Montana landscape is constantly changing—the light fleeting and the weather unpredictable, the awe inspiring lasts only moments—capturing that special moment challenges the artist in me.”
