Three Men In A Boat & fall fly fishing


Three Men In A Boat   8"x 10"   oil
I haven't worked with fly fishing for a bit and this one includes the warmth of the gold leaves in the background and action in the figures that I thought gave real direction and life to the piece. By tomorrow though, one of these guys might be wearing a red shirt to break up the "twin look" of the blues, hmmmm can't decide.

Mary, today's piece and "Silver Lining" are just fabulous. Always love your fishermen and no surprise the other is sold. Congratulations and happy new year to you!!!

This is great, Mary. My eye roams around enjoying your color, lively brushwork and sense of light. I'd leave it as is. I think a red shirt would steal the show from all the rest. Just my opinion.

Love this one- just gorgeous color harmony. Your fly fishermen are some of my favorites and this is wonderful. I like it just as you painted it here also:) JMO:):)

Your work continues to amaze and inspire me, Mary. I love the way you create impressions of shape, light and movement while still leaving good room for the viewer's imagination.
