Mt. Whitney Fish Hatchery

I took a fishing trip, recently, to the Eastern Sierras with my son before he headed off to college. Just fishing, no painting. But I did get some photos to paint from later.

This is from one of those pictures I took when we visited the Mt. Whitney Fish Hatchery, south of Bishop, CA. It's a unique place with an old stone building and a large pond in front where they keep a number of huge breeder trout.

Beautifully landscaped, I got a lot of photos and you should be seeing several more paintings of this spot in the near future.
