Xmas Presents? Trout Watercolor Prints!

Thought I'd put another thread up here to remind anyone who's looking for a nice fishy Christmas present where they can find some cool paintings. And remember, 100% of profits go toward a very good cause: Keeping my kids fed and housed !

All are hand-signed giclee prints on 300lb. archival paper.

If you're interested, PM me or email me for prices at icthyart(at)yahoo(d0t)c0m

If you're emailing me, remind me that you're on AZFAT (my homies on this site pay a little less than everyone else. Shhhhhh.)

You can check out my latest commission for an AZFATer here

Here are some of the goodies:

snake river cutt-in-hand 8.5x11"



Brown-in-hand 8.5x11"



brookie-in-hand 8.5x11"



close-up rainbow approx. 11x15"



Close-up Brown approx. 11x15"



Full Bow



Full Brown (the latest that's for sale)



detail of the head:

Man that brookie is scary looking enough to give you nightmares. I sure as **** wouldn't want to be a smaller fish in his territory.

Word. That fish was caught by a guy lamed Lynn Scott on Henry's Lake. Beefy and mean, no doubt.


If anyone else needs something last minute, I'm in town and I have prints with me.

Smile Prints

mvtoro rocks !

There is no describing the quality of his work.

I just received 2 copies of his brown trout close-up (one for me one for a birthday gift).

They are truly impressive works of art.

I plan on commissioning something this coming year (particularly if I can coax a nice brown out of the Juan this coming February).

Highly recommended.

Thx.

Scott

I got it a few months back and it's da bomb! Of course, I made the mistake of letting the woman at Michael's talk me into the framing. Looks great, but for that kind of money, it should!

yeah - I've still gotta hit up michael's for a frame. I'll wait until sunday's 40% off coupon and buy something simple say a brushed aluminum frame. I'll cut my own mat. it's gonna hang above an original watercolor of eight salmon hanging off a stringer.

Thanks guys.

Yeah, michael's can be rough for the framing. Don't know exactly how to feel when the art itself is the least expensive part of the finished product! Oh well.

I bet it would look great with a custom-cut bamboo frame. Michaels (and anybody else) wants a fortune. I am guessing your ability easily exceeds their unrealistic prices. Got a miterbox?
