St. Regis River (Two Mile Road)

2:30PM – 7:15PM
78 degrees
48 x 96 inches acrylic on polycarbonate

This is the first fly cast painting to ever come from this river and its character of flow and unique blue color did not disappoint. The rocks on the bottom of the stream and banks were overwhelmingly blue. In the main part of flow in the main part of the stream the large rocks have a very contrasting dark color to them. The chance to double up casts to make a larger form could be used with the large dark stones being represented. A meditation that comes from this painting is the idea of length of string dictates the rate of flow and combination of statis and more flowing parts of the stream. This part of the river was light on red colors but a mellow copper color was found that matched with the soft warmth of the immediate gravel at my feet.
