NEW PAINTING ADDED TO GALLERY – 1% FOR THE PLANET

Looking for a way to give back? Here’s a great opportunity. I just added my most recent canvas, LIVE WIRE BROWN, to the ARTWORK gallery (for a larger view click HERE). It’s a bright, lively, Brown trout that looks like it’s about to swim off of the canvas, thus the name, LIVE WIRE BROWN. I’ll […]

THE 100 CLUB

Nope, I never gained access to “The Hundred Club”—couldn’t count to one hundred when I was in kindergarten. Not even close. Our teacher tallied each student’s progress on a for-all-to-see bulletin board—neatly trimmed with colorful construction paper—at the back of the classroom. Like a trophy to be had, near the top of the board, written […]

NEW BROWN TROUT PAINTING ADDED TO GALLERY- BROWN ON BLUE

Just finished up a new Brown trout painting. BROWN ON BLUE is a 28×22 acrylic on canvas. If I’ve counted correctly this one has fifty spots! I passed on interrupting the continuity of the blue background with a signature on the face, instead signing this one on the left edge. If you’ve been looking for […]

COMIC BOOK FISH PAINTING ADDED TO GALLERY

There are some things that you don’t expect to find together…vintage 1970s comic books and fish?  The dictionary definition of JUXTAPOSE is – “place or deal with close together for contrasting effect: black-and-white photos of slums were starkly juxtaposed with color images.”  That said, my newest painting AMERICAN STEEL represents more than just the contrast […]

BONEFISH PAINTINGS ADDED TO ARTWORK GALLERY

The bonefish is what I consider to be a “challenging” artistic subject.  At times they come to hand appearing to be outlined in features, reflecting shades of blue, green and purple.  And sometimes they appear stark as a mirror – visually adhering to their moniker the gray ghost.  How does an artist portray this impressive […]

COSTA SUNRISE LENS REVIEW – BLIND CASTING IS FOR SUCKERS

At first I thought my buddies were screwing with me when they started talking about the tarpon that were swimming within twenty-feet of our boat.  They taunted, “You didn’t see that fish right there?”  I didn’t see any fish “right there,” just reflections on the surface of the water.  When I missed the second pod […]

BROWN TROUT PAINTING “BROWN ON GRAY” ADDED TO GALLERY

“BROWN ON GRAY” just added to the ARTWORK gallery – It’s a 24×18 inch acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas, with a 1.5 inch finished edge.  There’s nothing like a monster brown trout opening its mouth to destroy your fly…this new painting intends to capture that excitement.  Lots of spots, color and detail…many hours of love went in […]
