    All I can say is WOW! Wow on the molds, wow on the painting- VERY inspiring. I don't think I've ever seen anyone that has such a grasp on bringing all the colors and patterns together to be "where you need to be" at the end of the painting process. That's one of the most difficult things about painting fish. If all our paints were opaque, it would be easy, but they're not. Rich your a talented guy and a hard worker. Now: how about helping me convert all my steelhead and salmon molds to something useable?!!!?? They're all plaster molds and I have to cast each fish one half at a time and then join the halves together. Plus I'm worried that some of these are going to break and have a ton of hours in them just getting the bodies smooth and scales in place!

  11. Rich I gotta say i like how you are doing the photos. I have been holding off on posting photos of my blanks on my website because I dont want the inventory of countless blanks sitting around just for a photo shoot. Taking pics of the molds is a great way to go.
    You have quite the collection now!
    I just finished the spotted bass and am very happy with it. Ill be posting some pics soon.
    Really nice looking blanks.

    RP,
    I can ship up to a certain size...42"length and combined length + girth not over 79" at a fairly reasonable rate.
    Anything larger gets very pricey.
    Just let me know if you ever need a quote on something.
    Thanks,
    Rich
