The top painting is a watercolor "Plugging in the Nauset Fog" by Cape artist and fishermen Tony Stetzko that is in my collection. It was painted in 2005.

Next is my watercolor, "Stripers at Gull Rock" done in 2005

[quote=Piscator;2338694]Bill (Lagoonguy), that painting of the derelict sailboat on the exotic shore is VERY nice. You are braver than I, as I find acrylics one of the most challenging mediums to create with. Well executed. quote]

Thanks Piscator.

I started with oils in the 1960's. My mother was an amature artist and I had the good fortune to paint and surf fish with Emile and Robert Grupe of Gloucester both of whom are fine artists(oil).

When I was on the Cape, I was also fortunate to fish with Anton(Tony)Stetzko who is one of a three-way tie for the largest Striper taken in Mass, at Nauset in 1973. Tony is a professional artist and he got me interested in water colors.

I hadn't painted for a while before I got to Florida. I liked the effects of watercolor but, not the time it takes to work with washes and the drying time between them. When I got here to Florida I tried acrylics. I use them in a watercolor style; with many washes but, I only need to wait a couple hours between applications.

A Shilstone watercolor on Copley. Shilstone has done a fair number of surf scenes. More than most for sure. Some are ok.

Here are a couple of photographs of my wife's paintings. The paintings are actually on old windows, and have the term "sunset windows", related to them. People display them in their Florida rooms, or screened-in porch, with the rear of the window facing the west. Then, as the sun sets, the painting "lights up" in a vibrant display of colors.

Some are OK!!!?? Those are absolutely beautiful Walter, Watercolor is also a tough medium to work with, as Bill stated, but by the look of Bill's Striper's at Gull Rock, it looks like he has a good handle on them as well. Bill, love the way you can see the striper in the green of the curl. PeterJay, I LOVE BLACK & WHITE PHOTOGRAPHY! VA Gent, tell your wife "BRAVO! Wonderful stuff guys, keep them coming.

Bill,

Wasn't Tony's 73 pound striper caught later than 1973?

Maybe late 70's/ early 80's

Thirty-three years ago my son, Adrian caught his first 6lb+ LMbass by himself. At that time I was doing some taxidermy work, so I mounted his fish. I was such a poor painter, I didn't want to mess it up, so it laid on a shelf in my basement for 33 years, unpainted.
Last year I sent it to Janet Messineo on the Vineyard for her to paint it. The result is the most beautiful paint job that I have ever seen on a LMbass.
MULE.

Yeah, not bad, but there are other artists that appeal to me more. They just don't do surf in most cases, though. I am not a big fan of the loose blurry approach in watercolor. Sometimes it works, sometimes not.

I did the same thing, Steve. I mounted a 16 pound steelhead myself but I paid a guy in Walthan Mass named Rocky to do the paint job. Its the coloration that brings a fish mount to life after the eyes.
