I’m so pleased to announce that for the 8th year I’ve been selected as the featured artist for the Ladies Day Tarpon Tournament! The event is held on Mother’s Day weekend each year, and it’s a great opportunity for female anglers to show their grit. My original painting titled “Reelin Rosie” is a fun piece, and it’s featured on limited edition posters, apparel and marketing materials. My inspiration was the famous 1942 image “We Can Do It” by artist J. Howard Miller, and this event seemed like the right time to highlight the strength, contributions and general awesomeness of women.
My wife wrote a nice piece in the Boca Beacon to lend insight about how the painting came to be. Check it out when you get a chance!
