With the clouds high in the sky and no snow in the forecast a visit to the Madison River was in order for a fly cast painting. This painting captures some heavy loads of paint. The Tooble fly brush was introduced with glowing success. It is effective for one implied false cast in front of the painting to throw the paint. It leaves a random sporadic series of dots. The painting surface has been balanced with iridescent pearl for the silvery surface of the river. The excitement about the metallic paint is that it is camouflaged in front of the opaque white color behind it. This painting is unique in its creation in the fact that the river never went too dark and repetitive strikes.
