River Bream

As you may know, in my last post I discussed a recent fishing trip in which I ended up with chiggers. I must report that all is well again and chiggers are no longer partying in my pants. 


I have caught so many bream lately I decided to paint a few. In this painting, I placed the bream on top of a river and gave them a shadow to provide depth. The river snakes through the painting in order to provide interest and encourage the viewer to look around. I have caught many bream in this river so I thought it fitting to combine the two elements together. I considered naming the painting "Filled to the Bream" but more inappropriately decided on "River Bream."
I hope you enjoyed these fun little fish and remember: What's in your woods, river, lake or bay? Get up and find out!

Very nice piece. Think you'll ever do a Smallmouth version?

Thanks Jay. I do have a list of fish I will be working on in the future and the Smallmouth is on the list.
