About two weeks ago I received an e-mail from a blog reader from Maryland. He was inquiring about several posts on the color variations of wild brook trout. The man is an artist and had completed a water color painting of a brook trout and wanted my opinion on the coloration. In the photo sent to me I could see a brook trout just removed from a dark stream in eastern Connecticut, a brook trout that I am very familiar with. I responded to the e-mail photo with "it's beautiful". After another e-mail I requested a copy of the print, and the other day I received the print...free of charge.
Below is "Brook Trout" and the artist is David Scheirer.
Some thoughts on this fine painting, when I brought the print to the framing shop the gentleman commented on what spectacular work it was. He said lets sit down and make sure we can create a frame that would compliment and highlight such a jewel. As you can see he did just that. I would like to thank David for the gift. The painting will hang above my fly tying desk.
