Good Luck! - fly fishing catch

Good Luck                                7" x 9"           oil on linen panel
I'm back to fly fishing today as this fisherman releases his catch of the day. It's always interesting to paint water in colors that are not the typical blues and greens. I like these gold tones reflecting part of the foliage above the water and the close up swirly shapes adding movement. So, while keeping the abstract shapes and different color palette it still reads 'water'.

  4. The golden water really catches my eye and I have seen it so many times in that color. I also love the pose of the figure, so natural.

  5. Being a flyfisherman I can relate to this. You handled the rod perfectly,sometimes thats a problem when you have your hands full of fish. Your brushstrokes always seem to enliven a scene. I'm a big fan of yours.
