So I recently went on a fishing trip on the Smith River in Montana. Wow! What a ride! We camped out at four different spots along the river on our five day float trip. It was such a neat experience. It's not everyday you get to cook your breakfast and dinner outside over a hot flaming fire! Or use a Latrine (better defined as a toilet in the middle of a field!) with a five star view of the Rocky Mountains! To say the least, it was a trip that I will never forget with my Husband and good friends.
So about this painting! I found a picture of this Russian character in a National Geographic book on the Soviet Union. There were so many amazing pictures to choose from. I painted him in about an hour between the first night we were there, and finishing him up in the morning. He was a great way to calm my itch to paint, and start my fishing expedition!
