Fly Fishin' Artist: Rod Crossman

April 16, 2009

Good afternoon ladies and gents!
Thursday if one of my favorite days on Up’North for a few reasons. It’s usually the first time all week I actually have more than twenty minutes to step away from college work and breath, but more importantly, it’s time for the Fly Fishin’ Artist of the Week!

This weeks artist is an out of the box abstract painter that goes by the name of Rod Crossman. Mr. Crossman is a professor, and Artist at Indiana Wesleyan University. He spends his spare time creating works of art that reflect an intense love for fly fishing with every brush stroke. What sets Rod appart for the other artists featured on Up’North thus far are his skills using many different mediums in art. While his etchings and classic oil paintings are incredibly impressive and beautiful, what attracted me to his work were his amazing abstract pieces. His ability to capture moments of fly fishing in creative and unique ways are inspiring and worth a look by serious and casual art collectors alike. Check out some of my favorite works by Mr. Crossman, and then head on over to his WEBSITE to get the big picture.
