As a lifelong passionate fisher, as well as professional artist, I just had to combine my 2 loves together. This resulted in one of my most successful series of "sculptures": the Fishing Lure series.
The premise of these piece is a "what if" of creativity. What kind of lure would it take to catch the perfect fish? What kind of lure would be so awesome and beautiful that no fish (or fisher) could resist it? My lures are purely decorative. Each measures from 6 to 14 inches in length. These are made from a combination of materials including wood, paint, various metals, gold leaf, etc. They are all housed in their own display cases made of oak bases with Plexiglas covers.
They make great gifts for the consummate fisherperson, sports enthusiast, or even as a corporate award! Please go to my website for photos and details: www.richardfinneyart.com
