[dropcap]R[/dropcap]adiant Brown Trout is a 4-foot x 5-foot oil painting of an abstract representation of the gill plate of a brown trout. In Radiant Brown Trout, I used a variety of painting techniques to make connections between the line, color, and form created in fish, natural environments, and my own memories of the outdoors – all is connected. Those who fish often find the imagery instantly recognizable but even people who do not fish find something spectacular in the work. This is what intrigues me and fuels my interest to paint fish as a subject.
