An old friend gave me this cherry burrl. He was a fish carver in years past and thought I could do something with it. I thought a Rainbow Trout would be appropriate. This is my first attempt at a fish and painting is not one of my best skills. Well,here it is anyway.

Very nice indeed. The rope frame is a nice touch.

Looks great, and I think the painting looks good too. Good use of the natural shape and grain of the burl.

It’s beautiful and creative. Like the carving, painting, the live edge and the rope accent. Well done!
