A Sketch from a new project

This is a sketch from a project that I am working on, I am becoming obsessed with the subject matter and am chomping at the bit to get this one under way, I have a couple of publishers looking at it, no takers yet. I think these guys were not that different from us and were more advanced in many ways than we think they were.

More Fly Paintings

Here are some more fly paintings, these I did for a fellow who wanted typical flies used on the Henry's Fork of the Snake river, I've used all three and they work to catch big fish. They will also be available as prints. They are fun to paint, quick and simple a good exercise to keep sharp on technique and mark making.

Three Flies image

I was going through some old files on my computer, sort of spring cleaning and came across these images. I painted them quite a while ago but I like the looseness of the paint and the spontaneity of the marks. I sold a few of them many years ago and I think I will resurrect them as a print and do some more to go with them, hope you like them too.
