This painting was commissioned as a birthday present. The painting depicts a sunset of the owners view of his land from their back porch. I was provided several photos to referance, and merged the best aspects of each into the painting.

Chris is an avid fly fisherman. He approached me to create a painting that combined some of his favorite fishing spots. He gave me rivers to reference from Oregon to Montana. I took the different landscapes from each river and combined them into one scene that bled the different topographies into each other.

The world can be a harsh place and we all have many trials in our life and sometimes those things can feel overwhelming but having trials and hardships and struggling, stumbling, and falling are ok. Life is messy and while it can be beautiful it can also be ugly and dark and scary. And that is ok too. Sometimes we break. And it doesn’t make us less. It doesn’t make us weak. It makes us human. Don’t give up. Even though you may be broken and scarred and suffering you are beautiful.
