West Fork of the Bitterroot River

5/16/20
noon – 4:30PM
65 degrees
36 x 48 inches acrylic on polycarbonate

The West Fork of the Bitterroot River was flowing like a mad torrent with a sense of urgency to get to its next destination. There were no cobbles to be seen in the middle of the current and the brush choked banks made the ability to access a fly cast painting spot a challenging endeavor. A new type of Fly Brush was utilized today with amazing results. It is a type of nylon/spandex material that holds an unbelievable amount of paint and keeps a tight line upon impact. The painting holds a strong monochrome with the deep raging water dominating the action of the painting surface. There was a strong yellow gold that encapsulates the steep shore of rocks plunging into the depths.
