Painting Through Prosek: Rio Grande Cutthroat Trout, Again

So, funny story. I guess I’m tired. I just realized I painted this trout already. Nice one, David. 
After another 12+ hour day at work, I came home to a sleeping household. Wife. Baby. Cat. All sound asleep. After finishing a couple chores, I decided to move forward with the next object of study in the Painting Through Prosek Series
The state fish of New Mexico is one I would love to see in real life. The Rio Grande Cutthroat Trout comes in many colors, but it always seems like you can imagine a desert landscape in the profile. 
Prosek’s version is colorful. Mine is inaccurate, but okay nonetheless. 
If you are interested in acquiring a couple prints of the Painting Through Prosek Series, visit my Etsy page. All proceeds go to our local trout unlimited chapter. The bundle of cards will come tied in fly line. My very first fly line, in fact. 
His is better 🙂

Easy Peanut Butter Cookies:
On a totally separate note, try mixing 1 cup peanut butter, 1 cup brown sugar, 1 egg, and a dash of cinnamon together and baking for 10 minutes at 425F. Crazy easy. Crazy delicious.

The saga continues following James Prosek’s lead.  The state fish of New Mexico is as beautiful as a desert sunset. I would love to see one of these in person. 
Prosek’s on the left, mine on the right.
It is better in person.
Maybe someday this could be yours 🙂
