    The Week in Fish Pictures" ~Year 5~ Week # 3-4 !!!!!!!!

    A warm welcome and happy hello from Hinsdale New Hampshire!!! I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving and it was full of meaningful time spent with friends and family!

    We share in the Week in fish pictures to find a common place with friendliness and positive comments of motivation as a great place to start in upward in direction of inspiration in being a fish taxidermist! I wish all the best each week and to folks competing in the up coming year and I do wish all the very best in the pursuits of good fish work!

    I do hope you have the opportunity to be thankful for your gifts of great passion and talent as an artist! It is a blessing to me for our lives to be joined from time to time to share and learn from one another so thank you for your great taxidermy work and my your lives continue to be blessed with inspiration!!!!

    I want to personally say thank you for letting me join you again each installment of the Week In Fish Pictures to share in your successes and accomplishments! I have seen first hand the great strides so many have made with beautiful fish work! Good for you and congratulations on your hard work!!!!

    Let's start of the week recognizing those from all over the world who shared their wonderful work with all of us! Thanks for all the beautiful fish work in this past weeks this week in fish pictures! Absolutely breathtaking!!!!!

    I want to also thank all of the great contributors who not only share their personal great talents and work but also rather give such positive inspiration to all of us!

    A great week Fishheads!!!!!
    From beginner's to the best in the world we all join in every week in a critique free and hassle free string with nothing more then great artist and inspiring fish taxidermist and carves get together to share with one another their praise and inspiration of good will and friendship to one another. No egos just friendly folks who appreciate the efforts of others!

    This is the time where I share a picture or two of some of the work we all do to share to inspire others! This installment I’m offering some thing a little different but hopefully just as inspiring! I have embedded two links to help share with the fun of perhaps some hands on inspiration! Please enjoy the 2 video tutorials on how to Paint the eye of Steelhead using the New Jeff Lumsden Stilllife eyes and his new Eye caddy to share with you all the fun in hand painting your own fish eyes! Please enjoy the videos!

    Just click the licks below and sit back and enjoy a lesson in how I paint steelhead eyes here for customer fish work!
