A Nice Day’s Catch is a fine example of Braley’s ability to depict precise details of his subject matter, while still creating a rather stylized composition. The intense light contrast and artificial arrangement—the fishing rod and trout almost floating against the nebulous background—make this work not just an exercise in still life rendering, but a kind of trophy: a proud reminder of success and prosperity. The painting is in its original frame and in excellent condition.
