Bluegill Hooked is a colorful watercolor painting of 3 Bluegill pals swimming in underwater vegetation, while one of the the group gets hooked! Streams of light coming from the surface highlight the surprised fish in the grasses below. Ryon's use of a range of bold blues and greens lends this 18" x 24" watercolor perfect for a beach house or river cottage. Framed with a mat, the size could be increased to 24"W x 30"H. Framing options are shown below. Framing can be arranged for you at an additional cost. Please inquire if interested.
