Thanks, yes she is talented, she has done several other drawings of wildlife that are also very nice.
As someone mentioned in an earlier post, some people are born with a gift for art.
I have been enjoying the photographs and other works of art being posted here.

More in keeping with the original purpose of this thread,this is a marvelous surf shot by Mae Bertoni, who I think is a Cape artist.
The Bertoni is a great painting. I think it is the nicest surf scene I have seen. It was on the cover of Gray's Sporting Journal back in the 70's. I scanned it and posted it with some others on another forum years ago. Since then I have seen it pop on the web several times maybe using the pic I posted. It looks like my scan. I am pretty sure I sent it to you years ago.

She hasn't done another like it that I can find. She did several seaside scenes that were very nice but none with anglers that I know of. I contacted her daughter from her site.

Bill that last painting of the old fisherman speaks for itself. It tells a story that few, if any young people today can even fathom.

Frank,

As with Joyce's fifty, I was thinking of a possible thread of mounted fish. Although fish mounts are certainly artwork, it seems it might deserve its own thread.

I imagine there might be a mounted fish (or two) adorning the living room walls of the members of Striper Surf.

Thank you for your consideration of this request,


Stan

Walter, the Bertoni scene was in my hard drive and I am sure I lifted it here from your post a few years ago.

I'm also curious about a person right clicks some art here, prints it, frames it. Could that be an intellectual property violation? In the case of Mae Bertoni we never had permission. In the case of members voluntarilly putting something they own up, they grant the rights to stripersurf which they signed off on when they joined. Maybe everyone involved is more interested in putting things up than quibbling about rights. I tend to think the latter.

This shot was a poster in the Surfcaster catalog. It was popular enough but they had to get $50 for it and by the time buyers got finished paying for framing, it was close to $200. I guess the project eventually crashed and burned.

Bill mentioned mounts. This is by no stretch a 50, but got it winning the NJ Angler tourney a few years ago, 16.77 lbs, 36 inches replica). The pic below it is me with the real fish. Jo decorated it for Halloween with the pumpkin, the one of it plain was too big to post. I'll have to get a pic of the one I got for my son this past Christmas of his largest caught from the surf, 43 lbs.

Yeah, reproducing someone else's copyrighted material without the creator's permission would probably be construed as infringement if somebody wants to raise a fuss. There's always been a huge gray area when it comes to that kind of stuff, (even more so when it come to electronic contracts and electronic signatures) so you really have to be careful. I protect myself by never posting anything anywhere - even on my own site - that can be effectively printed on anything larger than an index card. If somebody wants a low-rez, 5-inch image, be my guest, it's worthless; but if I spot a 14X21 print in a poster shop, the owner had better find a good lawyer, because I already have one, and he's one mean SOB.

BTW, many thanks for the kind comments on my own work. Kudos to Frank for starting this thread; I'm enjoying the heck out of it.

I paint for the enjoyment of it. My originals, that have not been given to my family, are for sale but I don't advertise them. If someone wants to copy and past, that's fine. If someone wants an original, I'll be happy to quote a price. On the other hand, I have always copyrighted my writing, just in case I want to write a book when I get older.

Picture is one of those rare GOM Booted Plover trying to get around the oil spill.

Since surf art for the direct market is so rare most of what is out there is illustration. Some of it is nice, like this piece. What I like is that it is at night, a rarity, and has good mood. I would say that the scene depicts the point at Montauk. Most of F&S artists were based in and around NYC so Montauk would be accessible to them.

Mr. Ragman take a picture of the picture, in or out of the frame. Then maybe crop it close to the frame. I do that sort of thing all the time. It will post fine, 50 kilobytes or less. Goin' do one of Teresa's like that soon.



A couple posts down on this thread, Walter did it fine with Field and Stream.
By the way, I wouldn't mind knowing at least your, and other's first name. I don't think your's is clam-slinging-bucket-sitting-rod-spiking-whatever.
Remember, I'm a Rebel, not a Yankee, and I don't know all "youse guys".

MULE.

Good idea Stan. Even this thread is working fine for the mounts, and believe me, taxidermy is art, skin mounts in the lead, repros distant second.All still beautiful.
