SUSPICIOUS FISHUS

My wife leaves town for a couple of weeks, and this happens…My first foray into making a sculpture.

The Suspicious Fishus – 34″ tall and 35″ wide, the base and supports are rough cut mesquite, and the fish is comprised of maple and red oak. All the pieces were hand cut, sanded and fitted.

DIGITAL FISH

A digital piece I came across this week. I started this months ago and had kind of forgotten about it; found it on a thumb drive I dug out of my back pack. I am going to finish it up this week and have prints ready for Troutfest.

This is one of the eagles in the drawing above. It takes the manipulation of every one of those curves in the background to make just one of the birds; just imagine what it takes to create the full image…It’s a bit overwhelming when you think about it!

HAIDA ART

This weeks art entry:

This is not an original layout. A quick Google search for Haida Fish Art will cough up several images that look like this. The circular pattern was copied but the design work inside, is mine. Completely hand sketched and colored. I find myself drawn to this style of art even though I know nothing about it, other than I like it. Life is about learning right? Time to hit the books…

THE WOOD TROUTZ

The first art entry for the 2013:

Cut, carved, painted, caught and released in its native environment…The shed!

This fish was cut out and shaped on a table top scroll saw, is 18.5″ long and stands 6″ tall and is 3/4″ thick, cut from a pine plank. All of the painted areas on the piece were carved or cut into the wood and painted or stained. There are 4 different sizes of holes, drilled completely through the piece, to create the spots of the trout. It was then lightly stained and a clear coat, varnish was applied. The back, bottom and part of the top of the piece are painted black.

The piece can either be wall mounted or will stand nicely, on its own, on a fly tying table or on a shelf in your office. The wood trout would make a nice addition to any fishy space.

There is only ONE and it for sale HERE on ETSY! SOLD

THE GUADIE REDO

This weeks Fish Art entry:

An iPad rendition of The Guadie caught during FlyStock earlier this year.

The Guadie Redo

Just needed to sit quietly and kill some time today. This seemed like a fine way to do that. The evil red eye is a play on the week I’ve had. I’m tired, a little cranky and in need of a good nap! — Completed entirely on the iPad using Autodesk Sketch Book Pro.
