Fishing Break 12x16 oil on linen panel


A painting for a long time patron, whenever he grabs his rod and reel the cat sticks to him like glue.A technique tip the back ground was painted with a little piece of towel. Whoops looks like I did not put in the top of the pole...easy fix with the edge of a palette knife.SOLD

Stunning, love that cat! You've got that early morning glow, full of anticipation.............

I love this composition, David. In fact, this man looks from the rear like an ex-boss of mine. I love that his cat always sticks to his side. I have a velcro kitty like that. Well, I have three kitties and one of the others is often attached at the hip as well. Anyway, love these still waters. You can almost feel the humidity!

Excellent David. Very appealing scene, which you have handled perfectly. He must have been pleased with the results!

Cats have a extra sense when it comes to anything to do with fish. I am always astounded that my cat knows the moment I reach into the pantry for a can of tuna - she runs into the kitchen and starts to meow before the can is even opened!
This has such a welcoming, warm feel to it. Great painting!

Fantastic.
The alert look on the cat adds an anticipatory feeling to the scene.

Lovely! I love that this painting tells a complete story... and we don't even need to see the gentleman's face or expression to imagine his thoughts and feelings for the moment.
