Here's a thread I've been wanting to start for a while but wanted to wait until I got a couple new commissions delivered before posting. Please everyone, feel free to share your personal art or your art/craft collection pictures/pieces.

I'll get this started with a few paintings. I have a BA in fine art and paint commission work on the side. Lately I've been doing fly fishing pieces and just delivered this one to Larry McNerney

Here are a couple other Oil paintings done this year

Early Riser - Oil on canvas (Part of my Chattooga River Oil series)

The Tailout - Oil on canvas

I work in both Oil and Water color. Here are a couple Chattoga River Water colors that will be for sale at the Chattoga River Fly Shop but are available in any case. I do not currently make reproductions/prints so everything is the original piece that will sell and remain one of a kind.

Chattooga Series #1 - water color

Chattooga Series #2 - water color

Hopefully that will get this thread started. More to come...

JJ, most excellent work, especially on the first one that is untitled. I took Larry to that spot last year and he asked for a couple of pictures so he could have you do that piece. Just an FYI, the first guy in the painting is my best fishing buddy Buzz, and the guy further back is my son Michael and they are fishing on Kelly's No-Tellum Spring Creek in southeast Idaho.

What talent you have and thanks for sharing!

Kelly.

Wonderful paintings. I'm going to have to get my oils and watercolors out and do a few myself-then maybe I can get someone to take some photos of them as I have no idea how to post them on here. Then you can see what english waters look like. Watch this space for later on! I very much regret not taking more photos of the rivers and lakes over there when I travelled through South and North Dkota, Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and Washington last summer as I could then use them for inspiration. Thank You so much for sharing your work.

Great complement flytier07...thanks

I've run the gammit from extreme realism to ultra impressionistic but my water colors remained generally the same. I specialized in water color and trained under AWS (american water color society) member Vernon Nye through college. A few years ago I decided to limit my oil brush work to 1/2 inch sizes and any "detail" to a pallet knife, thereby keeping to an impressionistic approach even in my oils.

thats not to say I don't do detail still. I also paint equestrian portraits and in those the application is very specific such as this one...
