The Fisherman

My youngest son in happier times, close to
twenty years ago now. Always ready to fish
then and now. Painting from old photos
always opens up so many memories.
Tough sometimes not to get lost in them.

breathe the air,
drink the drink,
taste the fruit,
and resign yourself to the influences of each."
(Henry David Thoreau)

This painting is very poignant, it seems peaceful to me also. That's so true, what you said about memories! Painting can be so emotional!
