I cranked out some quick steelhead works as a part of the fundraising efforts for the Brule River Rats Stewardship Councils GoFundMe page. We posted the “steelhead sketch” by Jake Keeler at $300 and it was quickly picked up – which was awesome, and humbling. All part of doing what I can as an artist to help a worthy cause.
I decided to make two – why not? Both are being sent off to the donor tomorrow.
I made these quick, without fuss and with raw energy. They’re a bit loose, a bit messy and a bit of what I need right now art-wise.
They are a perfect shot in the arm to help me finish a handful of neglected commissions, wrap up some other works in progress, and then perhaps shift gears to working on paper; more messy, more quickly and more free-wheeling.
They’re what I should work towards as I map out my spring and summer.
Happy making amigos.
