“Everyone has a time in life when they catch a big fish”

Recently, I watched a documentary about angling. Interestingly I noticed that, when an angler catches a big fish, he shows it off. The fish is weighed & measured in the public’s full glare and, lot’s, no… loads of pictures are taken. And suddenly, I struck the ‘eureka moment’…

For me the symbolic interpretation of this means that, everyone has an important day (or days) in their lives that they celebrate. And just like the angler, when you’ve caught a ‘big fish’ everyone knows because you want them to know and celebrate with you. The ‘big fish’ in our lives is any and every important, happy occasion that we have had in this our journey through life. This painting is inspired by and, celebrates all those who have caught and are still catching ‘big fish’ out there… I’m one of them and very thankful to God for this. :)
