Grant loves his Original Paintings

“I have had the sincere pleasure of working with Derek and Janell several times over the past five years. Derek’s special talent for transforming everyday fish images into amazing art is truly unique. From a vibrant palate, to the mastering of color, I remain inspired each time he sits at the canvas. While his traditional trout faces speak to my love of freestones and five-weights, his new tarpon series has struck a deeper cord. We are currently working on a film called Atlanticus, which focuses on the magnificent Tarpon. Derek thank you for sharing your talents with all of us, “Silver King” will proudly be hung in my office during the production of our next film! Keep up the great work…”
