Looking at some old pics today (ca. 2002) and found these of me trying to revive a White Marlin that had drifted into the surf at Casey Key Beach. He didn’t make it; scientists thought he may have died of simple old age. Before handing him over to FL Marine Research Institute, I honored him by creating a Gyotaku on the largest thing I could find – a big sheet!
I recently got a note from a customer who bought one of my mermaids. In it she said “Thanks for your talent and the joy it brings!” How often do you hear something like that? Making the decision to be a full-time artist has brought its share of ups and downs, but when I get that kind of feedback, I know I’m on the right path. Thank you to all the special folks who have bought my products, offered great positive feedback, and continue to provide an encouraging environment that keeps me going! Now, back to work. . .

Here is a time lapsed video of a tarpon painting I created recently titled “Bustin Loose”.
