Default new art piece

Stopped by my buddy Andy's shop today and picked up a new piece of art for the tying area. I thought I would show it to the masses and see what you all think.

The guys and I have two Andy Burk paintings at the shop. One is Steelhead head. The other is a striper head. Andy makes some pretty wild stuff.

In 1993 I met Charles Gaidy a famous enthomologist and artist,as we were having a drink in a hotel bar,my son Nicolas who's fond of drawing asked him he he could draw a fly for him.We found a sheet of paper ,he took out his fountain pen and in a few minutes it was done.As he thought there wasn't enough ink left in his pen...he put it in his beer mug...then shaked it a little and finished his drawing...

Hi everyone,

Thanks for sharing your art. I think they are great. Check out this site that makes art flies that are 5 to 9 inches tall. I saw an ad in Eastern Fly Fishing magazine.

I think Larry is making some metal sculptures that are good.

Frank

I love stone flies, so I gotta love your purchase! Hey maybe we need a "Show us your fly art" thread?
Thanks for sharing, very nice stuff.

You should see his new shop. He spent 8 months or so this past year drawing and painting all sorts of really good stuff. He put art and fly tying together and opened his own shop in Hirshdale. I'm trying to get him to put more online. Some really sweet stuff!

JBBFly,
Killer sketch he drew for you there! I would give anything to be able to draw stuff off the top of my head like that. Never could draw anything out of my head, had to have something in front of me that I was looking at.
