"People are numb and looking for inspiration wherever they can find it.  The new artist has to find a way to speak to that dead part and create a spark, a green sprout.  Most people think it's color because color is emotional. …"

"Fishing while underway is by dragging a float or handline w/ a tuna jig or plug. Bottom fishing is done while in the dinghy. This is the way in the Pacific, should work in any ocean. Hand line is 70'  220# test w/ 10' 100# test…"

Most Marketable?

Most marketable medium????I have reached a roadblock with my goals as an artist. My main medium for many years has been watercolors. I have created hundreds of detailed watercolors in the right sets, colors, and styles. Recently I have had a challenge when being accepted into the art print market. For example I go to a top print manufacturer that has 100,000 or more images they use. I type in "watercolor" in the search box to get an idea of the market. What came up was a whopping 6 watercolor…See More

Hi Derek,
I am soon to be retired after 38 1/2 years. I got drafted in 71, entered basic at FT Ord in 72. Been to Iraq twice,Mosul region, and Afghaniatan once, was pretty much from end to the other there. My body is shot, my mind is burnt out, I am definately ready for setting the clock to Island Time. Maybe we will get a chance to hook up on my way down. Leaving around 9 Oct down the ICW, I have 30 days leave to get to southern florida. I'll plan on spending a night there on the way down. Jeff

Hello Derek . Your work is wonderful. It's an inspiration.
I've done a bit of water colour over the years and have enjoyed it very much.

When you come to the fork in the road.....

It was an adventurous, albeit cultural experience as my friend Linda Rincones and I drove from Punta Cana to Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic. Initially we traveled west toward Boca Chico where we approached our first fork in the road. Confidentially we chose the wrong prong. After a ten kilometer cruise we took a gander through a neighborhood which luckily led us back to the correct prong. A few hours later we approached three more forks. We took each one in stride appreciating our…See More
