    The Week in Fish Pictures~ Year 2# Week#23

    Big Hello from Hinsdale New Hampshire!

    WOW what a great week we all shared in this past week in fish pictures! There was some really inspirational fish work last week!!! Again 2500 plus views once again this past week now that is nothing short of outstanding support to intrest of all who love great fish work!!!! I hope you all had a great week my friends and family of Fishheads!!! Lets start off with some Big time thanks to our great contributors this past week!

    Great work last week by Travis J, Josh K, Ole ( Redstag ) , Gus, Doug P, Paul B, Aaron S, Justfish, Dan B, Nate, Denny, Bdahyrt, Cory, Rich H, Ninetoes, Gary B, Kevin Birznieks, Michael and
    Frankie Shipman, Kinil, and Jimmy L!!!!!
    and Rich H!!!!! Super work and Big thanks for sharing and aspiring all of us!

    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.

    This week I want to start the week of with a good friend of ours and a wonderful contributer of the Forums. Mr. Jimmy Lawrence of Bedford Iowa! Jimmy spent 10 day with me here in NH for his second workshop on fish. Jimmy worked long and hard for sure and did some great work here as he demonstrated commitment and diligence while remaining a valued family member of Anglers Artistry. Jimmy did more then a day of sight seeing and Wooing the girls at the resterant we took Jimmy too. Jimmy is a hard working fishhead and a gifted taxidermist! I too the liberty of putting Jimmys fish on the bases he already made here while working on his skills. This is a beautiful Pink Salmon and a very pleasing base simple but enhancing!

    So with out further ado lets get week #23 under way.

    So here we go and here is to a great week in fish pictures!!!! #23! Enjoy!

    My Best!
    Your friend

  13. Pescado

    Pescado Biggest in 2011

    Large Mouth skin mount recently finished. Yellows & pearl white on lower parts of the fish not distinguishable due to the poor photography. I'll get that figured out someday. Photographing taxidermy would make a good seminar topic.

    Some outstanding fish as usual.

    Super job on the Pink Jimmy. Love the Smallie Jeff and Doug, there's nothing "simple" about that Pike. Nice.
    Paul, Your work speaks for itself. See you guys next week at the show...............
