"I Remember Fishing with Dad"


Jason Dorsey, my son, has his first children's book published.
It is called, "I Remember Fishing with Dad".  He and I painted the 32 
watercolor illustrations for it.  It is being published by Just Dust Publishers and
will be available December 1, 2015.  Jason made a wonderful introductory 
video about the book which is very good.  Books can be ordered directly 
from him through his web site.  Jason and I began working on the illustrations
10 years ago back in Indianapolis.  Here are a couple of the illustrations that are 
in the book and some photos of Jason and I ten years or so ago with our beginning illustration work.

Great Falls Montana western art days.


Chief Joseph
Chief Joseph came upon his father burial site to find it plowed under, a very sad experience for one of our native American's storied life, which brought tears to a proud warrior.

Long Feather (Dakota Pride)
A Dakota Indian, Long Feather, adapted his ways to the Christian teaching that traveled west over lands that once belonged only to him and other native Americans.

I am thankful for the Avista Corporation's Best Of Show Award that was awarded me last Thursday night at the Prichard Gallery.  This painting was entered into the Palouse Watercolor Socius Regional Show at the University of Idaho.  Nancy Ann Stonington was the Juror in this four-state show.
