The good news is however that not only got a few things done, but it was nice to be home and I painted up this rainbow that I am donating to the Henry’s Fork Foundation silent auction. The HF Foundation is putting on its annual “Henrys’ Fork Day” on Saturday June 18, 2011. If you’re in the area I highly recommend swinging by to enjoy the event and wet a line for at least a few hours. Fishing should be fantastic by this time and I can guarantee you I’ll be around.
Speaking of art, I have been meaning to post this 4-fish piece watercolor painting I completed before leaving for Mexico. I did this painting for Jonathan Rutchik of California. This is the first time I put more than one fish on a single sheet and the end result is something I’ll be doing more of in the future. As you can imagine, such a painting was very time consuming and when I was on the last fish I was a little nervous. A mistake here and hours of work would be lost. Luckily, I have these fish down pretty good these days and I’m very pleased with the final product.
By the way, if you have ever wanted a “Currier Original” art piece, you can save yourself some money by not waiting any longer. I will be emailing my webmaster a list of price increases on all of my art. This will include my watercolors, pastels and Cliff Fly Box art. My webmaster is a busy man so I doubt the new prices will appear before the end of the month so that gives you a few weeks.
There are a lot of reasons for the increase, (Not just to support my fishing and traveling habit). I’m in three galleries now instead of one. I have several consigned pieces booked at the moment. I am hoping to finally get prints going. I’m ready to make my fish swim and I want to have time to explore some new mediums in the near future. I’ve never played with acrylics or oils and I’d like to.
That’s it. I will be lake fishing tomorrow. Stay tuned. . . . .
