Latest Press

I know this has nothing to do with drawing flies, but I am still going to announce it here anyways. I had three paintings published in the November/December issue of Ducks Unlimited Magazine. My good friend Bob White who has illustrations regularly published in this and many publications, called and asked if I would be interested in creating paintings for an article for the DU Magazine. This was a bit of a challenge for me due to the fact that I have never been duck hunting and the paintings involved some rather close ups of people. Well, I took the challenge and the following is the result. The paintings were developed around the well written story by Dave Books.

Congrats, that's very cool. I'm not a duck hunter but I like the paintings.

Great stuff! I had the issue sitting right here to check out. Very nice. I don't do much duck hunting at all (not in years) but I think DU is a helluva conservation org and worth supporting. Their wetlands conservation is top notch and they use their donations wisely.

Congratulations! What a great opportunity! I AM a duck hunter -- more so than a fly fisherman lately -- and I think these are great. Anyone can appreciate the sort of nostalgic images you have represented there. Very nice work!
