Ring of bright water - New ltd Edition 
Ring of bright water
This painting depicts a little boy standing ankle deep in a puddle of clear water , he probably still has his shoes on and there are probably no fish in there to catch but that will not deter him, as far as he is concerned its full of fish and he's going to catch them no matter how long it takes !. 
The title of this painting is from the 1969 film Ring of bright water , a little bit dated now but still a wonderful touching story about a man and his pet otter , i went to the pictures to see this film when i was a boy and the images have stuck with me . I think this painting has a connection to the film somehow but will let you figure that one out for your self !
