Catch and Release

"Many go fishing all their lives without knowing it is not fish they are after."

-Henry David Thoreau

I often find myself sitting in a small camp chair beside a mountain trout stream, painting. ​

People that are fly fishing come by and give me a funny look, or sometimes a nod.​

I know that we are there seeking the same thing, the same experience: to be in flow, in nature.

For the fishers, catching is the only reward. They catch and release. For me, painting is the same.

 

I want to make it easy to have one of the paintings I have completed over the last 40 years.
