about this piece
'Tarpon' is a strong resister, especially if caught in deep water. Most catches of the primarily inshore fish are 40 to 50 pounds although the world record was a 243-pounder.

Familiar with their habitats, anatomy, and color patterns, Flick hooks almost every fish he paints, although most are released shortly after. After landing a fish, he carefully measures it, and then traces its outline. Using taxonomic methods reminscent of 19th centur artist Stephen F. Denton, Frod photographs every inch of the fish so he can count the scles and include exactly the right number in his painting. For accuracy in color he relies on both his pohotgraphs and his artistic color memory. When possible, the fish are painted life size. The resulting paintings show the unadorned beauty of the living fish, with an unparalleled accuracy that has them nearly jumping off the wall.
