Misty Morning

A couple of years ago my husband and I went to South Dakota on a motorcycle trip and this is one of the beautiful rivers that we saw. I believe the atmosphere is what attracted me to this scene. I'm ready to go back to see Mount Rushmore, Iron Mountain, the Needles Highway. . .

I don't know why but I had to take a picture of every fly fisherman that I saw (and there were several).

Your painting would just be so wonderful on the walls of a fisherman.

Hi Suzanne, this painting would be great for a fisherman! I could probably do a show on these (lol).

Pat you will love Mount Rushmore. There is a lot of shopping around there too. Take your camera because you will have lots of good blogging material!
