As you may know, I do enjoy fishing. But did you know I like to draw too? When I went canoeing, Largemouth Bass have been elusive to me at the lakes. I only caught a handful this year. So today, I wanted to do a sketch of a lunker of a Bass. I’ve done a bunch of drawings of bass before, but this one I am happiest with because it has a big open mouth in action, and a big fat belly! What do you think?

sketch: tennis ready

March 14, 2021

Spring is around the corner and there is more daylight, now that we spring forward our clocks! To me, that means, I can play tennis again (not to mention paddling and fishing too). Yay! The great outdoors is my gym, so I can finally get in shape again. In celebration, I do a drawing of a player that is ready to do a serve. If you’d like to see more of my drawings, please check out my store :)

What activities are you looking forward to do as the weather warms up? Let me know!

Happy Spring Everybody!

As small as the Bluegill is, this sunfish has an amazing spectrum of colors. It’s like a jewel that is often overlooked and underappreciated from our rivers and lakes. Watch out when giving them a worm while fishing, they have an attitude of a shark!

This is my lazy Sunday sketch. Happy weekend all.

The Florida Everglades is home to many unique fauna and flora. I created a 2-D diorama illustration, featuring nature that is native to the wetlands. The print size is 11×17 on 13×19 paper. It includes the Alligator, birds, turtles and fish. All thriving along the Mangroves.

As a bonus, there is an accompanying animal identification chart on 8 x 10 size print, naming the Everglades flora and fauna. I was inspired by seeing museum dioramas of animal life in their environment. I match them up by shape and numbers. The print is available at my shop. Check it out :)

This is the last element in the Everglades outdoor and nature series. I hope you enjoyed my videos and artwork!

By the way, can you name any of the animals in the drawing?

Which animals do you think are the most noble and gentle on Earth? I would like to say one such animal is a Sea Turtle. They are so calm, and they seem to not have a care in the world, and they will see a lot in her 80-year-long lifetime.

As a turtle “flies” gracefully in the deep blue sea, all she wants right now is some scrumptious sea weed to feed upon. She needs to recharge after a long journey across the ocean. My sketch is of a Green Sea Turtle.

What animal do you think of, that is so benevolent?
