  1. WONDERFUL, love the colors as well Rosa… In regards to the fish, I love eating them and heard that fly fishing is an art in itself and streams (no pun intended) along with a no-mind state like painting. Nice pairing I’d say. I’m already sighing deeply and relaxing.

  2. gorgeous colors…am a little familiar with fly tying as my former husband was a fly fisher and also tied his own flies…I miss fishing, actually…

  3. Hi Rosa, I’ve been away and just caught your post! Thank you so much, I am thrilled to be included in such a wonderful company of painters. I will link to you and post your wonderful site. Again, thanks – I can’t wait to see your next pick 🙂
