I paint those subjects that attract my attention and please my eye, and find flyfishing a pleasing and beautiful subject to watch. The fluid movement, attention to detail and careful planning of fishing all seem to parallel the activity of painting in many ways. I enjoy watching the play of light on the fishing scene throughout the day, and look for drama in color, light and movement in both fisherman and landscape. My paintings make use of sketches working from life and reference photos I've taken on trips with my husband and friends throughout the Northwest.
