Open House at the Fly Fishers Fly Shop

Last Saturday, I had the pleasure to be able to be part of Pat Ehlers' Fly Fishers Annual Open House. I was generously invited to paint a Brown Trout during the event, which was then to be given away as part of a raffle.
I can't begin to tell you how much fun it was to meet all those passionate fishermen, to hear their exciting fishing stories and of course, to get their input on my artwork. It was a very inspiring experience for me and I loved sharing the 'story' of my Fish Art and how I go about creating my artwork.
Of course, I wanted to include the piece that
I painted, so that everybody here can take a
glance at it as well.

As temperatures seem to rise much faster than in past years, I think that there will be plenty of opportunities to go fishing and as for me, to see those fish just as they come out of the water, which is so important for me, because, that is how I
like to portray them.

For now I wish everyone a wonderful spring and lots of outdoor enjoyment!
