"Fishing Day"

"Fishing Day"/9"X12"/original watercolor painting on archival paper
This is a scene from Bennett Springs, Missouri. A beautiful park with clear, spring-fed water. The only time I actually fished (I prefer to paint) was on opening day of trout season years ago. They blew a starting whistle and, upon casting, I slipped and fell into the cold water at around 6:00am. I haven't fished since, but painted on the spot instead. Some people bought the wet paintings right off the easel. I've been wanting to paint this scene ever since.  Enjoy, Eileen
