Tom enjoys fishing with his son, Jared, and painted this portrait after a day out on the lake. He wrote:

Here is Jared with a rainbow on his line. Note the sunlight is coming from the left side of the painting. There is a sliver of light on his arms, face, leg, and life preserver. The inside of the canoe on the right side of the painting is red, while the left side is dark. There is reflected light from the orange life jacket on his face. Small portions of the trees have sunlight on them, but the rest is in shadow.

This is one of my favorites! It is hanging in my art studio.

I really like this one too, Jared. I know you and your Dad have been fishing together many times and this painting certainly depicts the joy you were feeling.

I have always been amazed at the way you portray water so beautifully in your paintings.
