A good friend of mine is a fly-fisherman. While I don't fish, I have spent time with him on trips. It struck me as I was taking in the scenery and looking into the water for fish - much the same way as the bear in the painting-that even in a vast landscape our point of attention can become very focused on the smallest of details. This large print captures both the vastness of a mountain landscape and the intimacy of a particular moment. - Robert Bissell.
