At the end of my fall in Creede, I went fishing at Buck Creek with my husband and three dogs, Dolly, Molly and Max. Molly, sadly, is no longer with us. We hiked in a few miles to Buck Creek. She had a wonderful day, following me in the stream, close behind but not crowding me, out of the path of the fly line, watching carefully for every fish I caught. She was about 13 years old, a lab mix. And, her adopted name was “Blue”. She was adopted for my in-laws, who changed her name, and she was returned to us when they passed. Blue all around; my pet, my loss, the trout, and the skies.
These are trout paintings completed in November and December. I’ve introduced metallic “interference” paint and gold or silver leaf.
Here are the two latest groups in the Trout Series. Memories from a day of fishing Miners Creek in Creede, Colorado with my dog, Molly.
Please join me in Lawrence, Ks for Final Friday to meet me and see my paintings. Would love to see you there!
