Years ago, my dad caught a little sunfish from the dock at Gradnma's cottage on Lake Koronis, MN. As he was removing the hook from its mouth, the fish squirmed and jumped free landing on the grass. My 12 week old puppy Molly quickly grabbed the fish and started playing with it. As we tried to get the fish from her mouth she would run away thinking this was a game of tag! Dad was able to get a shot of Molly with fish in mouth before we threw it back. Don't worry, the fish was returned to the water without harm :) This photo was so neat that I had to paint a picture of it. I spent a little over 30 hours on it. The most tedious part was all the white fur and the scales on the fish. I was pleased with the result. The original now...
I am a Colorado artist and art teacher who specializes in outdoor, landscape, and wildlife art. My wife, daughter and I live on the beautiful front range with a great view of the Rocky Mountains. As teachers, we spend much of our vacation time in the mountains hiking, fishing and enjoying the great outdoors.
"We make in our measure and in our derivative mode, because we are made: and not only made, but made in the image and likeness of a Maker." - J.R.R. Tolkien
I believe that God is "the great artist," and any efforts that we make to create or copy His glory only pale in comparison to the beauty of His work.
