Forest for the Trees

Evergreen, 12”x12” acrylic

I was inspired to paint a few forest scenes. I live in a heavily timbered part of the planet. This first painting is reminiscent of the view from a small window in my studio. I like the wall of trees and occasionally spot turkeys, grouse and deer passing through on their way to the water.

Mac the fish

Mac 8” diameter acrylic on wood

I am painting a few trout portraits to honor our aquatic friends. I caught the largest trout of my life on my birthday. I always catch and release fish but they are netting these Mackinaw trout to reduce their numbers. They are serious predators and clearly get huge! This fish was 17.85 lbs and 36″ long! It is providing a lot of meals for the family!
