Best Coast Postcards Are Here!

Many folks have asked for my popular “Best Coast” painting to be made into Postcards so, at long last, here they are!

The package of 10 (same image) measures 5X7, so not only are they great for sending to your pals, you could give some away, or even frame them for heaven’s sake.  They also make great gifts for folks who love all-things-Florida.  A package is $10 bucks.  Please check ’em out!

For the last few weeks I’ve had some great Tarpon experiences in southwest Florida!  I haven’t yet caught “the big one” this season, but I know she’s out there, just waiting for me. . .

I’ve managed to get a few to the boat, jumped several, and got some great pics along the way — here’s just one.  One of these will surely end up as a painting!

National Hug Your Cat Day

Today is a very important day for Max & Phoebe, along with millions of other felines out there.  It’s National Hug Your Cat Day!  My wife and I hug them ALL DAY LONG, but instead of posting a pic of us hugging them, I thought I’d share one of my favorite drawings of the kitties.  Cute, huh?  Have a great day everyone (and please take some time to hug your cat)!

Guy Harvey & Brendan Coudal Meet Again

In 2004, I attended the International Game Fish Association‘s artist showcase in Dania Beach, FL.  I don’t think they hold the event any longer, unfortunately, but it was a great opportunity to see some amazing marine-life artwork.  I met some of today’s great marine-life artists including Guy Harvey, Don Ray and Carey Chen — very inspiring, to say the least.

Here’s a pic of me and Guy.  Funny to think our paths will cross again on Friday, June 5 when we’re both in Boca Grande signing limited edition posters for two special events sponsored by the Boca Grande Chamber of Commerce.  Guy will be signing his posters for the 2015 World’s Richest Tarpon Tournament, and I’ll be signing my 2015 Ladies Day Tarpon Tournament posters.  I can’t speak for his posters, but my “Bubbly Mermaid” made a big splash for the 25th anniversary of the Ladies Day event, so I’m looking forward to meeting more fans!  Hope to see you there for this “historic” event!
