Daily Paintworks Challenge
This weeks challenge was to paint clouds. I selected a photo from the end of the day when you get the last rays of light touching the bottom of the clouds.

The places we seek out to fish takes a little effort to get to so its not often we see other fishermen, but when we do they usually have the same goals as we do so it is fun exchanging information on what is working on this day, or other streams in the area that have been fishing good lately.
The best part of it though is the seclusion from everyday life, a little downtime to recharge the batteries where your only worries are figuring out the best way to approach the trout without spooking him and hoping you chose the right fly.
Painting is very similar, your concentration is so focused you forget about life's problems even if its only for a little while.
Being cooped up in the winter gives me time to get all the fly fishing paintings out of my system.
