This is my husband on his recent marlin fishing trip in Panama, South America. He and his friends had a phenomenal time - the fishing down there is incredible! Look for more paintings of their trip soon!

Acrylic 24x48 Canvas SOLD
This is the monster I worked on today. It is not quite done, their feet need work and so do their faces. Overall, I am pleased with the classic composition. I also enjoyed using some metallic paint in this one in the highlights. A friend of mine has some extraordinary artwork in her house and some of her favorite pieces have metallics in them. After a visit at her house I was inspired to incorporate some metallic paint into this painting.
Finished it today! I am happy with the end result - which is not that different from where it was in the original photo.
UPDATE: I donated this one to the Decatur General Hosital Foundation Gala. It sold at auction and now has a wonderful home with the Sheltons! I hope they love it!
