I happen to be the proud owner of one of Galen Mercer’s original flats paintings and it makes me smile every single time I look at it. Its a painting of a beautiful turquoise flat in the Marquesas, due south of Key West, the magical place I caught my first tarpon on the fly. A memory I will treasure my entire life.
Galen is a very talented landscape artist and if your serious about owning original art from a modern day master, i would consider one of his paintings. Galen just sent me some new work which i would like to share with you, hope it makes you smile too…give him a shout if you have any questions…or click on his name to take you to his studio website.
In Galen’s words, “I am enclosing the first of what I feel has been a good winter’s work. In the wake of several large snowstorms, and picking up a theme begun last year, I journeyed to the Catskills seeking painting subjects among the smaller brooks and streams. This newest group consists of three pools along Mill Brook, a lovely trout stream and tributary of the Pepacton reservoir. I learned recently that both Harry Darbee and A.J. McLane believed this stream the prettiest in the Catskills. Certainly a judgement call (so much lovely water) but it is undeniably among the least changed. These minor rivers and streams have a beauty that seems very much removed from time.”
