  1. While at my mom's I decided to take a few photos of some of my first works of art.They are around 25 or 30 years old.Going to take the pheasants home with me and sell them cheap!

    your "inferior" work is still 100 x better than the most skilled taxidermists here in GA. , your work is outstanding

    They look good for being so old 8) Looks like if you get in an argument at the bar you are gonna get shot with the pistol ;D
     
  9. thanks for sharing, always good to take some time and look back ;)
     
  10. Cheri - the birds look great !! but I am also checking out the Jerry Tarkanian signed basketball, would love to have that!! I've got a NCAA Basketball Signed by the coaches and players of the 2000 Final Four Wisconsin Badgers that is fun to look at.
     
  11. Hahaha that's funny.That's my dad's basketball...and the pistol is a ceramic one. How do you like the paneling?It's even older than the birds are!

    They say all trends go in cycles.....couple of more years and the paneling will be cutting edge! ;)

    I love it !! What a great trip down memory lane - how I wish I had some of my first mounts still around (as if they'd even be in one piece) what a great share for us to see - thanks for posting - FUN !!! (btw not surprised at how good a painter you are) brilliant !!

    Hey Cheri!
    long time no see ;D
    I love your early mounts, they are better than most first mounts I have seen around. The painting is just beautiful!
