Fishin' by Kyle Ploehn. Original 16x20 acrylic on canvas painting.Fishin' was one of those weird images that just jumped from seemingly nowhere into my head. I had enjoyed painting up the pixilation trout right before this image, but hadn't planned on doing another fish so soon when this surreal image just hit me. I found it light and funny in my sketches and decided as long as painting fish was still fresh in my mind I should just go ahead and paint it. The idea behind it plays out like life, we're going along with all these distractions and lures to catch out attention. New car, new house, new phone, we are always seeking out that new thing, but sometimes we've got to look beyond the immediate for the hand trying to catch us for dinner.

The original is still available, an 16x20, framed for $550.
8x10 matted to 11x14 prints are available for $45. Contact me at [email protected], if you're interested in purchasing a print. Visit my online gallery and blog at or drop by Facebook and say, hey.
