John Briggs, an expert on the subject of creativity, wrote in his book Fire In The Crucible -

"Probably from time to time nearly everyone has felt the rise of their unique vision into awareness - as nuances, as uncanny moments, as a fleetingly strong sense that a mix of different contours and feelings one has about the world must somehow go together. These instants of vision are extremely tacit. They are sensations we have no words or forms for and which other people don't seem to experience, or at least don't experience in quite the way we do."

I like to call this an aha moment and I had one of these recently at the Metolius River in Central Oregon. A early evening thunderstorm had just rolled through and left some wispy patches of fog hugging the water on the river. Noticing this I went for a hike along the river to observe this unique weather and came upon this fly fisherman. The evening light, the fog, the woods and the water all fit together perfectly. It was an aha moment!

The painting depicts a solitary fly fisherman standing thigh-deep in the Metolius River after an afternoon thunderstorm. The sky is still overcast casting a soft and muted light on the river. The air is cool and damp, and the mist hugging the water adds to the atmosphere of tranquility and serenity.

The fly fisherman stands is intently focused casting his line to a seam in the water where a trout can by hiding and he appears focused and content, lost in his own thoughts as he waits patiently for a bite. The painting captures the peaceful and reflective nature of fly fishing, as well as the beauty of the natural surroundings. The scene is quiet and still. You can almost hear the sound of the rushing water.
