i'll pay for a yellowfin tuna, about 40" long



40" Yellow Fin..... Cool

Should get it done next tues/wed I'll post it up here, and send you a message letting you know to check it out.

Thanks, I'm looking forward to carving another yellow fin.

Indoors or out ? the difference is about 6 more coats of varnish for exterior.

Which makes it look very glossy. I'm trying out some new coatings To see what brings out the colors best without too much shine.

48-50 incher. I can get her done, by next wed. Nov 10th.
You can check out the picture first. I'll post it here.
48-50" would be 160 or 145 for vet. Unless I can find cheaper shipping on this size.
I'll look into it.

Would you want multiple coats for exterior hang, or will she be going indoors ?



she will be going indoors above my fireplace...don't worry about shipping...if its extra...I will pay for it....thanks man

Thanks guys, Yes I plan to stay put & stick around. I think it's a great match up,

I will get to work on another " vertical fish painting " and I'll title it. Those fish are in my dinning room on a 6 foot stretcher. Let me know what size painting you'll be interested in.



Paintings are between 300-900 depending on size and detail If you wanted a 9ft x 6ft oil that's what I would call 900 + I'd probably have to drive it to you.



For let's say 2'x2' or 2'x3' 400. 'for now' Like the size of the old marlin oil above. Also you have the preference of a wooden stretcher or canvas. 2" thick off of the wall. No difference to me, some ideas just look better on wood... After all it was the original "canvas"

Small fact: Artists started using canvas in order to travel with work, prior wood was the primary painters surface.

i would be really interested in one of those larger stripers as well, most likely for indoors, definitely post some pictures when you get done with it.

I have 2 fluke done now, including the one in this photo.

I'll check on the shipping it's not much at all for that size, under 40" shipping is pretty cheap and fast. I'm heading to nyc today for my fiance's birthday.

Also for anyone near me in CT pick up or drop off's we can discuss. Also I travel to LI once pretty often.

I'm psych'd about these current projects. Everything above will get done Sunday-Friday. About the fluke I will write to you sunday, and we can work it out. Also I've started some fluke w closed mouths if you like them better. The designs will only be getting better. I'm getting a groove down.

Talk tomorrow!

and thanks,

Patrick

Outstanding: I was working on a new painting and two 4ft stripers today.

I'll be home tuesday to wrap up some orders from the wooden fish market.



Happy Veterans day & USMC B Day week.

These are the nicest carvings I've ever seen. Can't afford one now, but I wanted to make sure I paid you the complement because they are awesome.
