Every time that I go fishing, I am entranced by the beauty of fish. There are so many colors reflecting off of them as they thrash around on my hook. (Beautiful and tasty too!) As I painted this trout I also noticed the beauty of the wood planks that made up the pier that I was fishing off of. And I guess that is why I like fishing, it gives you a chance to be still and take it all in- the beauty of simple things and the excitement of the unexpected.
