The first one is another daredevils fishing lure piece. A client from McCormick gallery missed out on the original painting that sold just a few weeks before. So he asked if I would be willing to re-paint it. This idea hasn't crossed my mind before, but there isn't any reason why it cannot be done. I'm just excited that there are folks out there who consider my ideas worth reproducing.
I've never thought my work would translate well into print form because, well they already kind-of look like photos - so what's the point? Part of the excitement with hyperrealism painting is being able to call the finished piece a painting. I feel this genre of art doesn't function well as a print unless the artist is well known such as someone like William Harnett or John Peto. What I'm saying is, I doubt I'm print worthy yet.
Anyway, here is the first reproduction, which is completed.
