FISH & FLIES
It's been a hectic few weeks. I've returned from an exciting summer of travels, family time and art shows to start school for my 15th year.
While I was in Crested Butte (which was a lovely experience and a fabulous art show) I met a lot of terrific people. One awesome gentlemen saw me working on this piece and asked to purchase it unfinished. I had intended to have it finished before we went to this part of Colorado where fishing is a passion. He requested I include some freshwater, brown trout and he purchased a variety of fly fishing flies that he enjoys using and asked that I include them in the drawing.
I had a great time creating this piece. I was fascinated by the variety of flies he provided. I had never studied fishing flies before and now I have a better understanding of how each one is an intricate piece of art. I kinda hate that I have to return them with the finished work.
