This painting, The Trout Stream, is very much like one that drew me to T.J. Cunningham years ago in Vergennes, Vermont. I particularly liked the way he handled moving water. When I saw this painting, I immediately wanted to acquire it for its luminosity. It hangs in my bedroom so when I first arise in the morning I see it. I am a painter myself and I'd like to be able to paint something like this one day.
