There is nothing like a peaceful day fly fishing on the river. Fall leaves on the ground, the smell of fresh air, the shadows of a nearby tree and the sound of the river passing by. Transparent watercolor and graphite pencil create this serene piece.

"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.”
