Salmon Fly Prints
|Seasons' Run is a limited edition series of prints from Steven's
original paintings of four classic salmon flies. Each fly was painted
actual size. Two hundred and fifty prints were expertly reproduced on
high quality acid-free paper. Each print is signed and numbered by the
The prints are 13" x 13". The same 7/8" wood
frame was used on
each fly print yet each frame a different colour to compliment the painting.
Steven chose not to mat the prints as he wanted the same look as his originals
with the flies centered on a white background. An acrylic spacer is
applied so that the print is not touching the glass.
The Cosseboom fly is the first of
the series. I mentioned to Dr. Wilfred Carter of
the Atlantic Salmon Federation that I would like to
paint a classic salmon fly that represented the
Maritimes and he suggested the Cosseboom. A
few years later on a walk the idea for the painting came
to me. It was mid-October, the end of the salmon
fishing season, the leaves were falling and at my feet I
found the perfect maple leaf.
I could not find a suitable wallet for
my second fly painting so I stitched my own of leather
and attached a brass snap. The Autumn fly, the
Copper Killer seemed appropriate for this painting.
I applied 23 karat gold to the painting and have applied
by hand the same gold to each print to give it the exact
same look as the original.
I knew that I had to paint a fly box.
I wanted the texture of wood so I soon realized that I
would have to hand craft my own fly box for the
painting. I chose the Rusty Rat to sit atop the
Blue Charm on
I love the wood texture of the lilac so
chose to simply hook this Summer fly on the lilac branch
and paint it.
This is the fourth painting of my
series, Seasons' Run.
