I did another variety of trout, this time, and Arctic Char. They, of course, are native to cold waters and capable of going to great depths. The more I read about these fish, the more fascinated I am with them. Also, the differences between them. some go from salt to fresh water, some not. Some can live at 1200 feet in depth, others stay closer to the surface. The image is about 8x15 and they are matted to fit a 16x20 frame.

I began a painting of a Native American I had seen in a meeting. He had a fascinating face, and I painted it from memory - didn't like it. While lying at rest at my accupuncturist's office, I had a moment where I knew what I wanted to do with it. Funny how when you're quiet, these things come. His face is still there, but only if you look for it.

This painting is currently hanging at the Bass concert hall along with a group of others from The Creative Arts Society. It was selected as one of 35 works to hang at the concert hall for 2 months.
Trout are the most silvery, colorful creatures on earth,especially the western varieties from the cold rivers like the Snake. I did 3 different members of that family and show one here. I have had prints made of one of them.
