The featured image, Max with Salmon, was a commission painted in oils on a linen canvas. It was done from a small, old photograph which was not very clear at all. I discarded the first attempt and started on the second and final one. I decided that the most important and most focal point of the painting should be the salmon — this was his pride and I worked hard to portray the heaviness of the fish. He sits there smoking and without a care in the world. The painting was presented to him for his 80th birthday and by all accounts, he was very pleased. The piece is in a private collection in Switzerland.
