River Fishing

Today's painting celebrates fishermen who are casting their lines into Pacific Northwest rivers and hoping to haul in a salmon. When I was younger I spent many seasons stalking the rivers of Washington State with my father and angling for the big one. More often than not, I came home empty handed, but it gave me a real appreciation for the skill and expertise required to hook those ellusive fish that squirm their way up the rivers each fall. This painting was completed in oil on a 6x8 inch stretched canvas. It will be joining some of my other quick studies at the Small Impressions Gallery on Etsy when the paint has dried.
