The Fisherman

This is a framed display of a couple of old fishing lures that were given to me several years ago by my father.  I also used the photo-display frames for a few watercolor/colored pencil drawings I created of additional lures he had.  I used striped nylon belting from a worn out lifevest for the border.  This is framed in a cast-off frame and the hanger on the back is made from a fish "stringer"!  I made the piece for my dad's 76th birthday and it was given back to me after he passed away a few years ago.  It brings back memories of the good ol' days when he took us all fishin' as kids!
