Tarpon week in Boca Grande ...

The week of June 3, 2019 is an exciting week for all of us on the island. There are so many events surrounding the 37th Annual World's Richest Tarpon Tournament. I attend all of the tournament events and I unveil my newest original paintings at the Boca Grande Invitational Art Show.

Carroll Swayze created another amazing lineup of world-class talent for the 2019 Boca Grande Invitational. The central streets of downtown are lined with white tents of artists known for their nautical and coastal wildlife works in every medium from glass and sculpture to painting and jewelry. You can see my 2018 and 2019 WRTT artworks side-by-side during the event. It's a special event where you can shop to live music and grab a bite to eat at one of the iconic downtown stops.

In brief, here is our schedule of events: Monday is the Grande Tradition event, Tuesday is the Sponsor Reception, Wednesday is the Captains Party, and Fishing is on Thursday and Friday. Friday and Saturday we will be at my art booth.

2019 World's Richest Tarpon Tournament

Each year that I create the artwork for the World’s Richest  Tarpon   Tournament , it is a very special honor to me. I love the Boca Grande fishery for so many reasons. The people I’ve fished with and the exhilaration of catching the mighty silver king are priceless. We are blessed to live in such a special place where the  tarpon  pile up and present us with the spectacle of huge rolling and feeding schools. Watching the crabs run on the tide or a fish evading a large and looming shadow of a bull or hammerhead are sights common here, unlike anywhere else. When I sit back in my chair on a drift off the pass, I often think about my previous  tarpon  experiences. Every single one was an event shared with friends and loved ones that I truly cherish. Fishing is as much about people and relationships as it is about the fish.  This year is a year of setting sons for our fishery. A few of the boats and people that I grew up fishing with or next to will no longer be in the P

VIP EMAIL SIGNUP LINK

There have been multiple asks for a link to my VIP email signup form. Here is the link! Thank you for your interest in my artwork. The VIP Patrons on my list enjoy advance access to new artwork. Art Launches happen as I complete new artwork. I can't pre-schedule my creative process! My art is in demand and many times the originals sell to my VIP Patrons before ever being released to the public market. This is the singular best way to see all of my new art and have a shot at purchasing it.  Otherwise you will have to wait for me to do a public art launch. :(  Who likes to wait?  Especially when it means most likely missing out on buying your choice of artwork.  For instance, I launched a turtle painting this month (February 2018) to my VIPs and sold it within  minutes . There were a dozen inquiries to that painting. That art is not going to be reproduced as a print, so the patron who acted on the email offering was able to acquire a very special piece of artwor
