Framed dimensions: 17 x 13 inches

Painted from life in his Connecticut studio, Morfis paints a shimmering life-like fishing lure. Hanging from a tiny metal nail via an anchor shaped hook, the fish-like lure dangles upside down. The eye of the fish glares at the viewer impatiently. A small amount of nearly invisible fishing wire extends from a small metal hook on the fish's mouth.

Signature: Yes, "J.Morfis" lower right corner
