New Tarpon Painting “Payoff”

It’s always great when I have a chance to work on a painting for a friend who has a special connection to something.  In this case, it was my friend who had an epic day of Tarpon fishing (and I just happened to be fishing with him that day).  He got a great shot of the leaping fish on his GoPro, and asked me to re-create it so he could look at it any time he wanted to in his living room.

Using a unique size/shape canvas, it was especially fun to work on it.  When this beauty was finished, my wife and I sat back and tried to come up with a title.  We had a long list, but kept coming back to “Payoff” — we decided that, after all the hard work, dedication, hope, financial investment and time spent, it seemed only fitting that this painting be given that title.  I almost hated to deliver it to my friend because I was enjoying it so much in my studio!  But he was pretty darn happy when he saw it, and that’s just great.

Prints will be available soon!
