Morgan Weistling - The Fishing Hole - May 2012

A superb colorist, artist Morgan Weistling brings this scene to life with spectacular lighting,
creating a sense of wonder and engaging the viewer’s imagination and emotion. Like a
skilled movie director, he manipulates the focus of interest with suggestions and
impressions of forms that are barely realized and allow the viewer’s imagination
to fill in the details.

The Fishing Hole is a unique, personal homage to brotherly love and childhood magic.
“I was originally going to title this painting Brothers,” explains artist Morgan Weistling.
“It is as much about the joy of fishing as it is about the bonding experience that fishing
allows. I painted it in memory of my older brother, Steve. I have fond memories of
him teaching me all of the things he knew about fishing and camping. I painted the
older brother with his hand on the younger boy’s shoulder representing that
protection that I always felt when I was with Steve. It was pretty handy having
a brother that was 6' 4".

“I painted that moment when a fish has just taken its first bite, the line gives that pull
and the excitement jumps into your throat. The experienced older brother is a little more
collected and amused with his brother’s reaction. When I was this age I remember
letting out quite a few whoops of joy while out in our dingy but my big brother was
always there to make sure the fish made it into the boat.”
