Rainbow Trout

I drew and painted this piece of art to celebrate the wonderful rainbow trout. I tried to reflect on the 1920s and the patterns of the Art Deco period for the border. I tried to complement the Art Deco style with a touch of nautical map design as well. The map is the actual trout streams of southeastern Minnesota that feed into the mighty Mississippi river.

The original is 30" x 20". Pen and ink, India ink, and watercolor.
