Fishing at Windy Bridge

Most people who fish can remember a time like this. The painting shows a spot on the Pecos River in eastern New Mexico that is well known to fishermen. It also attracts artists who enjoy painting this interesting place, which is marked by a huge boulder on the riverbank.

I’ve painted there often. Whenever I see someone fishing, I can only hope he’ll stay long enough for me to place him in a painting.

And here’s “Fishing at Pecos Camp,” showing another fisherman in the same river.

The original watercolor painting was sold to a private collector by an art gallery in Santa Fe, New Mexico.
