Fish On. Taut line, bent rod, quick snap, big grin, reel whines, arms high, bigger grin. Out of the corner of their eye from a hundred yards away, any angler can recognize the lines, body language and adrenaline surge of a hook-up. It is gestalt personified.Nelson Boren's rise to prominence in the art world has been built upon applying this concept of gestalt to cowboy life. His large format graphics tell whole stories of the durable American icon one intimate slice at a time. So, it was only a matter of time before Nelson's other great passion emerged in the studio.With his first release on the art of fishing, Nelson presents us with just a fragment of a magic day on a clear cold river. Quickly, the mind flows and we fill in the rest; lunkers cruising just beneath the surface, a furtive boil here and there, shooting lines, the favored creel heavy with success. Reproduced as a Fine Art Giclee on Paper this edition captures all the wonder and presentation of the watercolor original
and is sure to disappear as quickly as a tail rise in a favored run.
