Default Don't let Outdoor Art Thread Die.

Maybe I'm a little too hot and tired this morning in this 97 degree heat from cuttin' logs, but I'm goin' fuss a little bit. Don't let the OUTDOOR ART thread die. There are so many good threads archived on this site that I wish I had a book with all of them in it. But I know that more than just a few fishermen can contribute to the OUTDOOR ART thread. That's some of the nicest stuff I've ever seen. Lagoonguy and Va. Gentleman and their wives. Rmarsh's little niece, Piscator, Peterjay, Finny, Frank, Ragman, Plum Crazy, and others who have contributed.
I know that most fishermen who are determined enough to become really good at their sport have other talents as well. Photography is an art. Even with a point and shoot pocket camera, a certain amount of skill is involved, and when you view Plum Crazy's slide show video that she gave us on July 10, you can see a wide variety of pictures taken with an expensive camera and lens that took a long time to learn to produce that kind of quality.
If some of you still don't know how to post a picture, go back to the POSTING A PICTURE thread, and pull up RobS first class post on May 2nd, for a complete explanation with diagrams on how it is done.
Writing and reading about the fish we catch is very enjoyable, but seeing your pictures of what you catch and draw or paint is even more so, especially for old buzzards like myself that can't fight the heat and the waves like we used to do.
Outdoor art, and pictures last forever, and as someone said, they stop time for an instant, and if I don't, on seeing them, feel that long ago excitement for a moment, then the wiring in my old brain is misfiring.

MULE.

Hey, Steve, I've got a couple more paintings I'm working on - always work on 2-3 at a time. Until then, I' post this picture by my cousin, Larry Dahlmer of my families boat, the Margaret D. Our grandfather, Capt. Johnny Dahlmer is in the pilothouse and the crew is sorting a tow of fish. The ship was built to my grandfather's design in Dunkirk, NY. It is named for my mother and mom christened her befor gramps brought her to Gloucester in 1910. She fished as a gillneter and a seiner until she was wrecked on Salt Island, Rockport, Ma. on Good Friday the 13th. 1925.

Larry is a builder of wooden boats and has a studio at his shop and marine railway on Rocky Neck in Gloucester. You can see more of his art at www.ladarts.com

I agree, Rob. I have so much going on these days that I can't take the time to solve the picture-put-up issues. Also, while it is entertaining and working for the site, I'm edgy about putting up pix that someone could steal with the right click.

All threads run their course and eventually even the best ideas fizzle once everybody has had their say, their input. It is part of the ongoing process; let's hope art is the exception.
