Over at A Year On The Fly blogger and artist Joel DeJong has been working at an ambitious project; to post a work of fly fishing art each day this year. As a blogger taking on a similar (but less ambitious project – Daily Fly Fishing Poem for September 2010) I can understand and appreciate the commitment required in this undertaking.
In his words:
My name is Joel DeJong and on January 1st 2010 I started posting one original painting or drawing a day for an entire year. Mixing my love of Fly Fishing with my need to practice my painting, the posts are centered around the subject of the flies used in the art of Fly Fishing. From the Adams to the Zonker I hope to cover at least 365 of the flies commonly used to catch every type of fish one can catch on a fly.
His posted art for today is a Tenkara Midge. He’s also made a request – he’d like folks to send him some ideas and photos to help fill out the calendar year. So give his site a visit and send along some ideas, maybe your photo will get transformed into art.
