” THE ESCAPE”
Stylized works are among my favorites, I’ve always been intrigued with driftwood. Sometimes I see a fish trying to get out, other times the wood just tells me what it wants to be.This stylized Brown has been one of my most talked about creations, frankly, I don’t even know who owns it now as It was sold out of one the Galleries that feature my works. – Jim Wiley
A #wileytrout does a lot of traveling even before arriving at my studio. For instance, the Tupelo wood began its journey from the swamps of Louisiana, the beautiful Manzanita from Oregon having survived wind,rain,and fire before Pat Reicher rescued it. It then became a thought from the one who created it .
It may be wondering , ” where will I go next “, AND ——-only you can answer that.
” I’m always chasing Rainbows ” over the years I’ve done several of these that now decorate cabins and dens . My last one was purchased by the Fly Fishing Museum of the Southern Appachlians and is now on display there.
This stylized Brown Trout was created from a piece of Caney Fork River driftwood root. It was just laying there weathering away. When I spotted it, I could see a fish trying to get out so, —– I helped it.
You can own this little beauty by heading over to the Wiley Store and purchasing it today. Give a new loving and appreciative home. It’s calling you .. can’t you hear?
