This Redfish was shipped down to the Texas Chapter of the Coastal Conservation Association for a fundraising event where it will be put on the auction block. We are offering a very limited number of 32″ x 24″ prints, and proceeds will benefit the CCA.
The purpose of CCA is to advise and educate the public on conservation of marine resources. The objective of CCA is to conserve, promote, and enhance the present and future availability of those coastal resources for the benefit and enjoyment of the general public.
Thanks to Sporting Classics Daily for publishing the journal and painting.
The journal story was born during a fantastic cast & blast trip in Louisiana aboard The Dogwood, originally a US Coast Guard vessel that has been repurposed as a comfortably appointed lodge for Southern Way Charters. A big thanks to Captain Greg Moon of Louisiana Fishing Charters, who made sure a good time was had by all.
It was a great trip for Ed to the Rocky Mountain Elk Foundations Elk Camp at the Las Vegas Convention Center. He spent a few days with the boys of Maven from Lander, Wyoming and worked on a new elk piece titled “Billowing Up”. It is 3x5ft acrylic and ink on canvas. It was a great place to work Americana with Cowboy Christmas right downstairs and the National Finals Rodeo in town.
After a great season of elk hunting at the No Business Lodge in Valley County, Idaho, Ed’s work has been recently been inspired. His new paintings reflect his time in the woods. Being in Vagas with all the other hunters was a great time to reflect.
Also, Ed brought “Bugle Once”, the recent selection of the RMEF catalogug from their Featured Artist Program.
