Heading Out 16" x 20" oil
I enjoyed every minute of painting both this and the original work which was small and in a square format. First of all, when I first snapped a series of shots of these two, it immediately created a story in my mind about their anticipation of a great day on the water. In this larger painting, I was able to paint with more depth of color and throw in more of the scattered wildflowers around the figures. And, as it turned out, it reminded a fly fisher out there of fishing memories with one of his daughters and he bought the original and commissioned this larger work as a gift. It just doesn't get better than that! This one is sold, but you can view other fly fishing works on my website.
