Feathers & Brushes

January 29, 2019

Art Lingren is keeping busy these days. Following his book on Harry Lemire, Art teamed up with artist Diane Michelin to produce Feathers & Brushes, a combination of Art's essay's from a lifetime of fly fishing and Diane's stunning artwork. 


Bill McMillan had this to say of the book: 


"Diane Michelin and Art
Lingren have combined to
create an artistically
exquisite book: Feathers
and Brushes, Through the
Eyes of Two Passionate Fly

Fishers. The water color
paintings by Michelin
portray rivers, flies, fly
fishers, and the salmonids
we seek with a remarkable
range of subject matter.
They pick up the bond of
human companionship at
all ages that fly fishing can
result in, the facial
emotions of joy on release
of a fish, and the capture of
the varied lighting of river
scenes perfectly portrays
what draws fly fishers to
their waters of choice at
differing seasons. Many of these paintings give the feeling one can step right into them
– be there in that moment. And Lingren’s memories, now in later life, just as exquisitely
take us into the moments these paintings portray as his life time of fly fishing is revealed
on the page opposite each painting. This is one of those masterpieces that brings to
mind the artistic marvels of Ralph Wahl’s One Man’s Steelhead Shangri-La, and Come
Wade the River from an earlier era. But rather than black and white photographs, it is
the water color paintings that draw one to each new page with anticipation and to read
the matching memory of fly fishing through the eyes of one of British Columbia’s
