Encircling Brown. 48″ x 36″, oil on canvas. Commissioned. SOLD.
The concept of “having a brown trout swimming toward you, with it’s head turned at an angle, rising and about to strike a fly” never could have turned out more beautifully. It was a pleasure start-to-finish working on this custom commission! Realism and abstraction marry perfectly to create fantastical pathways for the eye to wander through this painting. So much movement! At times it is as if the sun is flickering and filtering on the fish underwater…while other moments reveal tension as if water is rippling with aggression.
