    Don't go having a heart attack on us now with this new girlfriend. I know how my cardio was after a year, never mind 38. Time to hit the gym.

    That is very nice of you to say that...Thanks...I always hope to inject some passion into my work...I don't copy photos ...but i can I prefer to interpret my experience...I have been painting so damn long i don't need them anymore, i have images and vistas filling my head and heart...and being a very emotional SOB that is what i love...

    Greetings, gentlemen! After seeing some of the work on this site, I regret never noticing this section of the forum until now... I'd like to take the opportunity to share some works that are the result of my passion for fly fishing. As shown, the medium I like to employ is painting on rocks, mostly from the Methow River. Again, thanks for sharing your passion with me!

    Skip, very nice work. I am envious of those on this forum with such artistic gifts! On the girlfriend, went through the big D about 10 years ago and it was weird dating for the first time, but ended up with a great match who doesn't even mind my addiction to fly fishing. Hope you have the same great experience I did!

    This is a print by Frank Benson. He was the artist on the 2nd Federal Duck Stamp and considered by many the greatest 20th century sporting artist

    There is a 7 volume catalogue of Benson's prints. Very expensive and out of print. They now have a single volume version that I believe is still in print.

    I had to sell my Benson print paff.jpg collection to pay my divorce lawyer.
