The Evolution of A Work of Art

Many of you have probably seen some of Alan Folger's artwork displayed in our Blue Ridge shop. There's a piece right behind the checkout counter of a beautiful rainbow I caught. Recently, I commissioned Alan to create his image of this huge Noontootla Creek Farm brown trout that was caught by Jake Darling. To me, this brown was the epitome of the fishing experience at The Farm and he's definitely at the top of the food chain. To get an idea of the process Alan goes through to create his artwork, go to Alan's blog to see his progress as old brownie begins to take on form. You'll probably also enjoy reading Alan's blog posts as he's a very entertaining writer.

For those of you who would like to have a unique memory of that special fish you caught, all Alan needs is a photograph and he can preserve that moment in your life for eternity.
