Here are some shots of a very textural painting of a giant lingcod.
Took a few days off posting, but not off painting. Here’s a three pack to make up for lost time.
Grand River muskies, pacific sturgeon and spey casting on the Umpqua River.
Stay tuned for some really crazy updates, including giant-sized, textured lingcod and northern pike on wood!
A striped bass I caught in New Jersey’s Raritan bay, measured 43 inches, 30lbs and tasted fan-fucking-tastic.
Nate kicking in a float tube, trolling a fly through a high Cascades mountain lake.
Fly fishing paintings, new ones every day.
I’m starting to develop a style or concept in these crazy paintings. The thing I’m most interested in right now is portraying the goofy, overjoyed angler and the last bleeding, gasping moments of our quarry’s lives. Here’s a nice late season Chinook salmon, bleeding to death.
One of a bunch of chum salmon caught around tidewater surrounding Tillamook Bay. I love these fish.
Part of the series of fly fishing paintings every day.
Caught this bad boy on my last trip down the McKenzie River last summer, a great looking Bull Trout. It’s gut wrenching sometimes to read and relive this stuff, sitting here in Akron watching the rain and snow pile up on the cornfields behind my house. But I hope it’s somewhat therapeutic.
I’m doing a fly fishing painting every day. Check ‘em out.
Yesterday’s fall steelhead painting got me hooked on the Deschutes. Here’s a trip from the spring, my brother landing one of those big sloppy native rainbows.
