All By Myself! Four year old fishing

18"x 24" oil on stretched linen, of my four year old grandson. Put on his own bait, cast the rod's line, set hook and reeled in, and a little bit of help took off the bass by himself. Then he turned to grandpa very proud and big smile called me out and pronounced, "Grandpa...All by myself!"

And thus the appropriate title of this painting...

Wonderful portrait. I bet he will love this in years to come (after the teens). Also it is nice work on the smallmouth (?) bass. Your talent in both portraiture and wildlife painting is showing. Gary

Re: All By Myself! Four year old fishing

Nice largemouth! I moved away from bass waters 45 years ago and haven't fished for them since...only trout and salmon where we moved to. A couple of thousand miles have kept me from the bass fishing of my youth. Nice work!

Grew up on the big pond (Lake Michigan) fishing Coho, Lake trout, browns, rainbows and King salmon.

Then I painted the last Inland Trout stamp required as a physical presence on a carried license. After 1998 licenses went vulcanized and now the word "Trout stamp" or ducks, etc is simply printed.

But, I grew to love inland lakes fresh water fishing too. Whatever pulls one's rod tip down! Hahaa

Thanks
