Soul Painting


In today's mail I received some wonderful illustrations of my favorite gamefish, from a good friend. Mark is ornithologist, a talented painter/illustrator, and a passionate flyfisher! Visit his blogs: FLYINTROPICAL and YUHINA ILLUSTRATION for more wonderful images and interesting flyfishing-related topics!

: ) ha... Thanks Vlad,

I am glad you like it! I think this photo looks better than the actual painting...: P

It is so great to have friends to share with those passion... The striper images really came out from the conversation we had couple weeks ago... They are awesome game fish, Indeed! : )

Vlad...those are all frame worthy. Receiving packages from Mark are always excellent!

Cameron,

You are so right, Mark is a magician with shapes, lines and colors!

BLUEANGLER said...

ha... too much kind words will make me drunk! :P thanks friends...
I really enjoy painting those fish... although not as good as standing in the water with a loop... we all should fish together... someday! : )

Ha, Mark, if you feel little "drunk" just have another beer and paint another masterpiece!

Speaking about fishing, all of us have to plan something...!

Cameron said...

Plan something? I'm there. Spending time with two other thoughtful and artistic anglers would be a treat. Where do we want to go? I want to see of Vlad's water!

Driftless area is a wild brown trout haven and has zillion of streams... All of them are perfect glass-water, mostly smaller size creeks. It would be easy to explore all three states: IA, MN, WI.

Another (maybe insane) idea, possibly for the next year, would be a quick trip for SW species to Baja, Mexico... still fairly affordable...or perhaps some other salty destination in the States.
