The Evening Rise
Oil on panel
My niece's husband took this photo on a recent fishing trip. As soon as I saw the photo, I knew I would use it as a reference for an oil painting. It just grabbed me. I love the setting sun, the bent rod, the story it tells. Steve, who took the reference photo told me that this time of day is called the evening rise, because the fish rise up to eat the bugs that land on the water. I am happy with this painting and how it turned out.
