Original American Oil Painting--Surf Fishing

This past weekend I was able to travel to the Washington Coast. The weather was like fall--cool and damp, but I was able to take a walk on the beach Sunday morning. Standing in the surf was a fisherman catching one fish after another. Everytime he threw in his line, he pulled out another Perch. He had a net tied to his waist and dropped each one in as he released it from the hook. He was bundled up in a heavy parka and waders. When I spoke to him about his good luck, he simply said that some days were better than others. This apparently was a very good day. This little 5 x 7 oil painting on gessoed hardboard was inspired by my experience on Sunday morning.
