My style is kind of childrenís bookish, a bit cartoony. While most of my work is rather detailed, I was able to be more graphic with this piece.

Sometimes when I paint, I donít really plan, but just allow the piece to come together. Here I wanted to illustrate the movement of the water and the liveliness of the fish.

Iíve only been fishing about two times in my life, so it was interesting to research and find reference photos for the trout. Before illustrating this piece, I never knew that brown trout are not, in fact, brown.

I personally like this piece a lot. Iíve gotten good reactions to it. I think it illustrates the poem wellóand in a unique style.
