Everything I Love

Kathleen Dunphy is as vibrant and colorful as the paintings she creates. Kathleen Dunphy (California) Caddis Hatch Oil 24″ By 48″ Fly fishing and plein air painting are the perfect combination, and my husband and I have found beautiful places to do both. Several trout were caught during this painting session, leaving both of us happy with our morning’s work.
