Check out Idaho trout artwork

fishIf you’re an angler or just love trout, you’ll love Leon Gaub’s trout paintings on display at the Art Source Gallery at 1015 W. Main St. in Boise.

Gaub works in bacrylik (batik and acrylic), a method of painting with acrylic paint and wax on cloth.

My wife and I were down at the Saturday markets in Downtown Boise and strolling around when I spotted the trout paintings in the window of the shop.

His paintings are so vibrant in color and the fish are in states of such natural movement.

Gaub was born and raised in Montana. He has lived in Idaho since 1972 and taught art for 32 years at Mountain Home Junior High School.
