"Tarpon on the Edge" was an oil painting completed after a trip to Blackfly Lodge in the Bahamas. The original was a large canvas, 40 X 27, and reflects the colorful waters of the Bahamas. Clear water and the light reflected through the water onto the fish are always striking components in these types of paintings. As you can see, the background is a darker blue telling you that deeper water is just behind the fish where the water drops off into a hole around 20 feet deep. The silver sides of the tarpon always reflect the colors surrounding the fish giving the task of painting the tarpon an array of challenges to the artist.
