On The Water Art and Bay Fishing

1 post in this topic

Local Artist Lee Abston of Poquoson Virginia won second place with this great miniature water color he painted of a picture I had taken of a Pelican in flight at the Third Island of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.

“Small Works: Miniatures by Hampton Roads Artists” opens at the Charles H. Taylor Arts Center. The popular annual show features more than 300 works less than 20 square inches or smaller than a 4.5-inch cube. Through Dec. 2. 4205 Victoria Blvd., Hampton.

Lee works at NASA Langley Va. and paints part time but I am sure he could do it for a living.

I feel privileged that he chose my picture and did such an awesome job illustrating it with a brush.

My wife had seen the painting on display and was able to purchase the original from a friend that had already bought it.

Here is the painting by Lee Abston.

I fished the lower Chesapeake Bay on Saturday and Sunday for several hours, both days were near perfect flat and glassy except for the fog on Sunday morning.

I drifted eels most of the time and caught a couple of Dog Sharks and had two short runs that did not stick.

I heard it was slow over all but some nice fish were caught.

I am sure I will be out again soon! Here are a couple pictures from this weekend.
