I was told by John that his father absolutely loved the surprise and just couldn't stop staring at it after he received it. His smile was permanently set for a long time after the unveiling and it makes me just as happy to contribute to the joy he felt.
For this piece we added to the framing of the painting the actual fly he used to hook the trout that day which only adds to the special nature of this memory.

Anyhow - www.hexfishing.com - my art website has finally been updated to include some of the newer paintings I have done as well as some not previously up for sale. Some of these have made it to this blog and some quite simply have slipped through the cracks. Whether you plan on buying or just like to view paintings of trout, I hope you click on over and see my works Below are just a sampling of some of the paintings now available at unbelievably cheap prices for ORIGINAL artwork. I have also been asked 'why are they so cheap?' and the answer is simple - I enjoy painting them and frankly I cant have hundreds of my paintings just hanging around on shelves in my studio. I would much rather put them in the hands of fellow anglers that can appreciate them.
Check it out and share it with your friends.

Yes, none of this has to do with fish but its what I have been up to so I thought I would share it with you.

I have been experimenting with dots lately and got inspired to do a little bit of dot sketching outside my usual fish subjects. A recent client of mine asked if I have done any birds in watercolor and I immediately thought back to the Pheasant and the California Quail I did a few years ago. Of course I have also done various song birds and even a few mallard ducks (which currently hang in my hallway) but they are still a bit different than my favorite subject - the trout.
That being said, birds offer another layer to my art that a trout just can't. They also contribute to the scope of what I consider myself to be - a sporting / outdoor / nature artist.
Both these illustrations are for sale, just shoot me an email.
