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.
Theresa I agree.
Bellisima work of this painter watercolor, very good gesture from David, I also like art but in pencil on paper.ReplyDelete
Scott art is in many forms and many look at it in such a way as is most pleasing to them. You do agree it is fine work.
Beautiful job by David. What a fine gift.ReplyDelete
Sam I'm not an artist but I'm told the brook trout is a difficult fish to paint.
A master at it is James Prosek and Davids painting is right up there.
A picture is worth a thousand words!! Awesome Brk Trt!ReplyDelete

Alan,that is a beautiful picture and an more wonderful gesture from David.my entire collection of art in my tying area are some form of brook trout, I just cannot get enough of them. Enjoy the painting,every time you look at you will see something different. Thankyou.ReplyDelete
Brad your tying area must be something. I can imagine you sitting down to tie a fly and just by looking around you have put yourself on the stream.
Beautiful, Alan! Gorgeous art and an extraordinary frame job also. "Every Picture Tells A Story".ReplyDelete
Mel and that story is retold each and every time our eyes are cast upon it.
Really nice work! And a great gesture as well.ReplyDelete
Ralph as an artist yourself that's a wonderful comment.
