Art Season Begins

A week of severe winter conditions including about 18”s of snow at the house followed by sub zero temperatures has helped keep me indoors and off the water for a few days. It’s been good because I have a lot of work to do. My biggest priority has been catching up on some artwork. As many of you know I take commission orders for fish and even pets giving customers the choice of having me do the art using either watercolors or pastels. Orders tend to accumulate during the heat of fishing season. It’s just hard to keep me off the water when the hatches are good and the fish are hungry.

One of the commissions I completed this week was a 9” x 12” bonefish (Albula vulpes) watercolor painting for Dan Beistel of Florida. This was one of many gorgeous bones Dan recently caught at Little Abaco in the Bahamas. I even remarqued his painting with the fly he caught him on, a pink puff. If you’ve ever wanted to preserve a memory of a fish you caught feel free to contact me while it’s Almost too cold to fish!
