Wanted

E-typeE-type Posts: 246 Officer
In the cold weather I have been fooling around with watercolors again and am looking for some new inspiration. I plan to donate any pictures I paint to Bonefish and Tarpon Trust to use in their banquets for auction. I have given them two and just finished the one below, "Making a Big Splash", which is based on a photo Aaron Adams let me use.

I just do this for fun and receive no money for it. I even frame the pictures at my own cost. If a photo looks like something I can do, and you give me permission to use it to donate, that would be great. I need a relatively higher quality photo to work from so I can see detail, at least two or three megapixels.

Anyway if you have anything that I might use, I'd love to see it. If you message me I can send you my email so you can send me a file. I only work on them when I feel like it. This is just for fun. So if I use one, I can't say when it would be done. I would definitely send you a picture of the painting and give you credit for the inspiration. If I find out anything from the folks at BTT, I'll share that with you.

Thanks

    Since I'm not a very good fisherman...and a worse photographer...I doubt I have anything you can use :shrug

    I just wanted to say that's awfully nice of you to do that. You're helping support a great cause.

    Thanks, but I had pictures in mind are of fish without people. I particularly like jumping tarpon or underwater shots of bonefish, tarpon, snook and maybe a closeup of a tailing red.

    I think Carl would like the portraits to adorn his home. As for underwater shots, I have some bonnethead stills from a video I took underwater, but wanted to see if that was ok before I went through the conversion/uploading process.

    Guitar,

    FYI these pictures already hang on the walls in my home. In the future please think before you post what I am thinking.

    Might be fun, but I'm looking for stuff that might have interest at BTT banquet. Thanks for responding anyway.

    Thought I had some (I do) but all my jumping tarpon show only the backs of the fish....like going away shots. Bastiges never did cooperate!!! :banghead. I think I took them from one of the FS Forums that someone posted. I use them at times for screen savers. I have a few bonefish shots but not taken under water. These were made by former forum member Peter Patricelli. I'll send you one, but please be sure that proper credit is given to Pete, if applicable.
