Reneson

There is pretty good mood in this pic. I am not sure of this guy's casting style, though.

Walter that is the loading phase of the English pendulum cast made famous by John Holden. Only there is supposed to be about twice the drop.
Those are great paintings. Wish I'd found them before you did. You are right, the mood is great in both paintings. Could stare at them a long time.

MULE.

I'll second that, Frank. I especially like the Reneson and Shillstone paintings. I've always liked Reneson but, Shillstone is new to me.

Walter, do you know where shillstone is/was from? I'd guess the first one you posted "unknown" is a Reneson. The style is the same but, then, Reneson is often copied.

One of my favorites is a painting called "Fishing For Striped Bass in the Surf on the New Jersey Coast," by a dude named Arthur Burdett Frost. Frost was a student of Thomas Eakins, who's widely regarded as the greatest American artist ever, and the painting shows definite evidence of Eakins's influence on Frost. It was painted in 1882, when sport fishing was in its infancy, and well-heeled Philadelphians and New Yorkers would take trains to fish the Jersey shore (I was gonna ask if Frank taught these guys to cast, but I don't want to get banned).

There's just something about this picture that I love. It shows that while some things change in plying the striper surf, some things are timeless: change the clothes these guys are wearing, and the gear they're using, and this could be a scene on any Jersey beach tomorrow. The allure of the high surf is timeless.

Arthur Shilstone (1922 - ) Active - New Jersey

unknown is not Reneson. It I remember in was an obscure west coast artist who doesn't do sporting art as a rule.

This is a Charles Denault wildlife artist's print, "Moment of Truth". Quality of the photo is wanting because I didn't want to take it down from my office wall.

This is called "Turkey Club". It was done for the Wild Turkey Federation by Lee Cable who was named artist of the year. I bought it matted and framed for $50 because the auctioneer started the bids while evrybody was in the men's room after dinner

You were lucky Frank. They certainly p*ss** away a chance at a beautiful painting.

The photo of the turkey club above does not do the actual print justice. Turkey hunters see that print and they go crazy for it. Matted and framed, it would easily fetch $300/$400. The Federation engages in these fund raisers using professional auctioneers and they pull in a lot money. Why this pro auctioneer would choose to start with the night's prize offer first, right after dinner, when all the potential bidders were standing in the men's room line, is kind of out-of-character. For a guy who is so cheap (me) that he flosses his teeth all week then ties a fly with the floss to bid and win on this is also out-of-character. Lesson: pee when the others don't.

Here's a picture I painted from a picture of my grandfather's last commercial fishing boat. "Superior" was built in Essex in 1932 for Capt.John Dahlmer. She was first rigged and fished as a mackerel seiner. In 1934 she was changed over as a Western Rigged dragger and fished for Redfish on the Grand Banks until the Navy took her in 1942 to supply weather stations in Greenland and Newfoundland with fuel oil and gasoline. She was a perennial highliner in the Gloucester fleet both as a seiner and as a draggter.

In the picture she is returning from Boston, after unloading her fish and is passing Ten Pound Island in Gloucester Harbor. This is a 8.5X11" Acrylic, Pen & Ink on Canvas Board.

I stumbled across some more in my dbase.

This one looks like an older Reneson @'70's.
