I had a collector call me from Texas a while back and asked for a big painting. I sent him a sketch of a piece 32" x 64". He emailed me back and said he loved the sketch but reminded me that Texas was a BIG state and he wanted a BIG painting. So the finished piece turned out to be 84" x 44". It's called TEXAS DUST STORM.

Not long ago I spent a couple of days in Southeast Idaho fishing the famed Snake and Madison rivers. This painting was inspired by a late evening I spent alone fishing Box Canyon. It took me about an hour and a half to figure out what they were hitting. The secrete fly turned out to be a red Copper John bead head - WHAMO!!!!!!

Blogging is a new tool for me and I’m excited to dive in and see what happens. My wife Jeanne and I live in Sandpoint, Idaho (50 south of the Canadian boarder). Here, on our little farm, we raised our seven incredible children, several cats, dogs, sheep, cows…etc. It’s been a great place to live, raise kids, fish, hike, fix fences, garden…and of course paint. My studio is a remodeled tractor shed with great natural light and an incredible view of Shwitzer Mountain ski resort. We love the mountains, rivers, lakes, and the people here. Today was a good example of why we love living here: My good friend Ken picked me up at 10:00 am and we headed for a little fishing on the Clark Fork River thirty minutes from the house. You ask: Did you catch anything? Never ask a true fisherman that question…but it was nice to get out.
