No Strings Attached

High quality prints now available of the acrylic painting “No Strings Attached” https://fineartamerica.com/featured/no-strings-attached-nick-laferriere.html?newartwork=true

A spawning scene of Colorado River Cutthroat Trout, depicting a flaring male and two hens. The name is a play on words to both say they shouldn’t be fished during the spawn (no strings attached) and because they’re spawning and they don’t form pair bonds. (no strings attached).

I had a lot of fun on this one and learned a ton about water reflection/refraction. It took a long time and several repaints to get the water just right.

As with anything, the painting looks better in person and doesn’t translate very well on a computer screen. But alas, it’s the best I can do.

Original 18″ x 24″ painting is available.

Most of my work is custom or commissioned by individuals, groups and businesses, looking for unique, custom artwork. I get requests from all over the globe of all different species, which keeps things fun and constantly challenging me and my skillset.

Here’s a selection of some of the artwork I’ve had the privilege of creating over the past year.

WHC Federal Duck Stamp Entry

I’m anxiously awaiting to hear how my pintail painting faired this year in the WHC Federal Duck Stamp Competition (Canada). It was a tough one but in the end I’m pleased with how it came together. I’m still learning on how to paint birds. So much intricate details involved!

Fingers crossed…
