Terry's Fish

I don't have anything new to show on my osprey painting. I had to put it up until I get done with a painting for a show. Since I didn't have anything new to show yet I though I would share a photo of my son. Terry's newest catch. This morning, Terry caught this Northern Pike, the largest pike he has ever caught. He took it to Allegheny Field and Stream to have it officially weighed and measured. The pike was 41 inches long, 22.7 pounds and 21 inches around the girth. Terry normally does the catch and release when he goes fishing, however, because this pike swallowed his lure and it was caught sideways in the fish, he couldn't save him. Since he couldn't release it, he is going to have it mounted. He is quite tickled with the fish.

Newest Painting being worked on, Ospreys

This is my newest painting that I am working on at the moment. It is of a pair of Osprey's in a Sugargum tree in Florida. The photograph I am working from was taken by Jack Schott (photo below). Jack was generous enough to allow me permission to use his beautiful photograph of a pair of Ospreys. The painting is a 9 x 12, the medium is water based oil paints. Updates of the painting will be uploaded when more is done.

Thank you Jack Schott for allowing me to use your photo.
