One of the things that got me started in art was fishing. My dad and I would go every weekend from March to October. We would go out and enjoy paddling around on high mountain lakes. We would catch the most beautiful fish, Trout.

During the winter, when the lakes were frozen over we would sit bored at home. We tried lots of things to keep us interested and occupied. One of the things that we did was cast key chains out in the snow and reel them in. What we did more often though, was draw and paint pictures of us fishing. That is kind of how my Dad, Tom Slack , and I got our start in art.

I painted this on a whim. It was lots of fun. I still love fish, and doodle them all of the time. water has become one of my biggest influences.

I’d like to catch a fish like that! This would be great on the wall of the Fish Trap in Half Moon Bay. Have you ever been there?
