Catch and Release
Framed 30 x 38
“Catch and release is how my husband fishes in Creede, Colorado. On a prime fishing excursion, he photographed the catch in a fishing net to show me his prize before the release. As an artist, instead of seeing his prize catch I saw the dimensional values, the opaque, translucent, and transparent qualities of the fishing net. The beautiful, large fish was of secondary importance to me.
Transparent watercolor medium was the only way to capture the beauty that caught my attention. Thus, I present to you ‘Catch and Release’; given to me by a fisherman but given to you by an artist.”
