Nestled in the lower reaches of Iowa’s Driftless Area, Joy Springs is a popular trout stream offering breathtaking scenery and occasion to explore nature while refreshing one’s self.
I’ve been an avid Iowa trout fisher for many years. As I sojourn Iowa’s many incredibly beautiful and bountiful trout streams, I’ve chosen to immortalize these gems of God’s creation through my painting.
“Joy Springs” is the second of my series of Iowa trout streams.
This original painting is acrylic on canvas measuring 30×40 inches. Painted on100% cotton duck with an acid-free, titanium acrylic gesso primer. The canvas is stretched over a solid wood kiln-dried, beveled stretcher bar frame.
