Autumn ParadiseDePuy Spring Creek
The original oil painting of Autumn ParadiseDePuy Spring Creek was commissioned by a fly-fisherman entranced with the upper creek in the fall. I was allowed to match the scene to the ideal moment. We painters can pull weather, light and color together creating a scene as we would like it.
Our Montana autumn colors did not cooperate that year. The cottonwood, willow and alder displayed glorious color briefly but separately. Even the cottonwoods color emerged and diminished independently one to another. Each fleeting color transition necessitated regular on-site attentiveness.
This particular bend of the DePuy Spring Creek is the upper part of the Ph.D. pool. The trout here demonstrate a seemingly higher intelligence, supremely challenging anglers skills. Visible, even to the amateur, these trout frustratingly identify the perfectly presented fly imitations and ignore them. Both trout and fisherpersons return to engage each other at this most special place.
