    The Month in Fish Pictures" ~Year 6~ January New Years 2013 Addition!!!!!!!!

    Happy New Year and welcome in 2013 from Hinsdale New Hampshire!!!! The New Year is upon us and I hope this year blesses you with great health and much wonderful opportunity’s to be inspired and to learn more about what you love to do in life! Tragedy, shootings, horrific storms, fiscal cliffs all is the doom and gloom side of 2012! We here as a community share in inspiration and a place to come to join in with like minded people to create a community of some incredible people! I personally have found so many of you that stepped up to help many this past year that were in need. There is far more good we do in the world it is juts shame you don’t hear much of it! What we freely give up as far as a right or a standard of expectation from one another or ourselves is lost to no cause other then acceptance! In 2013 don’t forget your life is your own and your way of life sometime s is based on what you will accept or not! Be generous when you can and help other that you find deserving of your efforts! Don’t buy in to the press and the rhetoric we still have a life worth living and it is not over yet as far as the day is concerned! 2013 is and will be what you make of it so make the best out of it!

    I need to share one more important item one of very own contributors here Dennis AKA “Den007” Murawska and his family suffered a great fire and the loss of every thing! Please if you can send out your prayers and thought to Dennis and his family!
    I started a auction for a opportunity to help raise some funds for Dennis’s family to help get through this time so check it out if you like.

    I absolutely want to commend all of you, as there are so many original contributors and many new ones alike that all share in this great string that has been around from over 5 years! I just want to remind and assure folks that we all begin some where and work hard at being the best we can all be as taxidermists. It is and always has been a spot on the taxidermy.net where folks can and do come to show there work with out criticism and hard comments! So lets remember to always keep it that way. As the moderator of this section I do not get to involved with censorship not do I ever want too. So be respectful of all and remember we all have a long way to go and should be enjoying the processes!

    What a truly outstanding Month in Fish pictures this past last month as I took some time during the day week to see all the great looking at some truly inspiring works of fish art!

    We share 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 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 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!!!!

    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!

    From beginner's to the best in the world we all join in every month 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!

    I want to start the New Year with a couple of colorful fish! Mr. Matt Kapraun of Harvard Illinois completed a colorful fish with us in his workshop I want to share with you as well A Giant Travally from a workshop with Mr. Martin Green of Australia!

    I hope you enjoy this fish work by our friend and fellow fishhead Matt and Martin!


    So here goes!

    I hope you enjoy the Month! See you in February 2013!!

    So here we go and here is to a great January and a great 2013 in fish pictures!!!! Enjoy!

    You're Friend

    Hope to see you soon!

    My Best!
