The Black Crappie and the Rock Bass are closely related, both ranging throughout the United States. These were caught in Upstate New York. They are painted true to size.
This large mouth bass is painted at a scale of 1.5:1 which means the live one was bigger by half. They can grow really big and don’t like to be caught, putting up a strong fight. The husband caught him, I photoed him and he was released back into the Upstate New York Lake fromContinue reading “Large Mouth Bass”
Birdseye view of Buck the Cat eyeing the bird.
This fish is found in the New York Adirondacks as well as a lot of other waters throughout the US. The one I painted is represented full size although it’s a small example. Ted caught it, I took its picture and then he returned to the cold water to swim again, hopefully a wiser fishContinue reading “Chain Pickerel”

I love casein, it’s a wonderful water medium. It’s far more permanent than watercolor and gouache and it avoids the frequent plastic and/or garish look of acrylic. It’s made from milk and has existed as a painting medium for centuries. It has a ‘graphic’ look unique unto itself, flatter than oils, yet as colorful.

Daily Cat 211 – Buck is vacationing in Wisconsin for the summer. He likes it there, sort of. There’s a big, husky white and tabby queen that thinks Buck’s encroaching on her domain and has nicked him in the ear to make certain there’s no misunderstanding about what’s hers and not his. Other than that,Continue reading “Daily Cat 211”
Buck the Cat hones his fly catching skills.
A Rock Bass is related to the Sunfish, you’ll notice that little black ear behind its gills that’s characteristic of that species. Ted pulled him out of the water at Lake Adirondack in upstate NY where he was also catching large and small mouth bass the same evening. They all went back into the Lake,Continue reading “Rock Bass”
While fishing at Lake Pleasant in Arizona, this mallard came to visit. We’d seen him with his mate many times before, swimming in the distance. This was the first time either had floated close to shore let alone hopped up on a rock to be photographed. I was delighted and honored.
When we go fishing at Lake Pleasant in Maricopa County, AZ, we sometimes see some of the burros that live in the surrounding hills and gorges. They’re skinny little creatures but they go and do what they like, a condition of being feral. Desert Life suits them.

Caught in Arizona, this bass bass looks a lot different in color than those we’ve taken in New York. Other features such as the dorsal fins are atypical of what is found in Largemouth Bass. Perhaps this is a hybrid. At any rate, it was caught in Lake Pleasant, AZ. We’ll have to see ifContinue reading “Largemouth Bass”
