Lunchbreak fishing

Yesterday, lunch break. Office park pond near work. 40 minutes. Are there even any fish??  Yes, there are even any fish. Tiny sunfish (longears) hiding in the rocks by the bank. They attacked my beetle spinner. Question : are there any bigger fish in this pond? Seems like there would be. Remains to be seen.

Floyds Fork

Fished a little today before the heavy rains set in. Mostly caught little longear sunfish, but also a few green sunfish and a smallish smallmouth bass. I used a beetle spinner at first, the switched to live bait. This morning in the compost pile I found some beetle larvae of some kind, and they were excellent bait--just the right size for size-12 circle hooks, and stayed on the hook marvellously. Probably never find more again, but if I do, I will grab them.

Pen and Ink House Portrait, Old Louisville

8 x 10 inches, finished a couple of weeks ago.

I would very much like to do some oil paintings of Old Louisville architecture.  The sunlight and shadows on the brickwork and roofs was very inspiring.
