The painting was accepted to the August Juried exhibition of the San Diego Watercolor Society’s exhibition and will be on display at their gallery:

San Diego, CA 92106
The show runs 08/03/2011 to 08/27/2011 with an Opening Reception on Friday, 08/05/2011.
This painting was done as part of SOJIE 12
Artists were asked to pair up with photographers to create their translation of a selected photograph. I based this painting on Brian Pelkey’s amazing photograph:
Dance of the Trout
by Brian Pelkey
I was captivated by the amazing dynamic action he captured and by the serenity of a frozen moment.
As you can see, I added my own spin on it:)
Please check out the Solo exhibition forum linked above, I and all the other artists posted WIP’s along the creative process -some fascinating things! Very educational and a great social event too.
The final painting is painted on Arches 300Lbs with W&N paints. The size of the original is 22×15″.
