Every artist has a central story to tell, and the difficulty, the impossible task, is trying to present that story in pictures.

It is raining cats and dogs this evening in Texas, possibly on its way to 3 inches.  Temperatures have dropped, requiring a sweatshirt in the Man Cave.  The evening has been productive.  I have finished the four vintage lures (5 x 7″) that I’ve tinkered with the past few days, and am ready to put them into mats and plastic sleeves.  Tomorrow I load all my gear for the next festival, which begins Friday afternoon and runs through Sunday (Art in the Park, Kennedale, Texas).  http://www.kennedaleartsfestival.com/  The weather promises to be glorious this time (I faced a disaster a couple of weekends ago).

My reading recently from Robert Henri’s The Art Spirit has given me much to ponder, and in subsequent blogs I want to share him with you.

    I love the “watery” backgrounds you’ve created! Makes one see the lures swishing through the water, and remember childhood. My grandpa used the same lures, and he’d attach them to our lines, too!…(my brother’s and mine.) What fun we had!

      Thank you for your comments. I’m pleased with the watery effects–plenty of salt and spray bottle work yielded some things I like. And I love re-living the memories of using those big wooden plugs when I was a child.
