Mitch Fishing at the Beach

Mitch Fishing

A  Bad Day of Fishing is Better Than A Good Day of Work

This is a watercolor painting of my husband Mitch. I feel I captured him pretty well for being the first time I ever tried to paint him. You  can see the photo I worked from here without loosing your spot on this page since the link opens to another page. Just close the page when you are done and you will resume to this page. The painting itself is a miniature of 4″ x 6″ in size, and I had much fun painting him.

    AWWWW HI MITCH!!! hahahahaha! and I see Deb, that Mr. Mitch here has a sense of humor 🙂 He’s all like “Damn I’m handsome for an old fart”… hahaha!

    Atta boy! 🙂

    Very nice Deb 🙂 Looks just like him. Are those raybans? 🙂 HOwever you spell that.

    • No, those are his prescription glasses…transitions. Glad you like it, he seemed to as well. Thanks Sue! 🙂 xo

  3. I didn’t know you were married to Burt Reynolds!
    That’s a pretty heavy duty rod and reel he has. I guess he gets some good sized fish surf casting.

    • Hahaha. That funny, Binky! When he was younger he had a smile like Henry Winkler.
      He always hopes too. One time he caught an 80 lbs ray. Right now he waiting to catch a good size cobia, but he loves catching those puppy drum too.
      Thanks Binky! xo

      I thought it was Magnum
      but yes Deb has a wicked
      Fisherman of a hubby 🙂


      • Haha, Magnum. All you people are going to give a head so big he won’t get through the door. 😆
        Thanks Andro…Mitch a really great guy…I’m blessed.
        Hugs ♥ XXx

    • Hahaha I was just about to write that too…he looks like Burt Reynolds 😉

      The painting looks great but he looks a bit glum there, like he lost his fish 😉

      Say hi to him from the three of us 🙂

  4. You two are so cute, Deb, and you did an amazing job! And my hubby would agree with your fishing quote, too, even though he doesn’t fish as often as he’d like! Hugs to you! xoxo

    • Aw, thanks Lauren. for both about us and the painting.
      Oh, yes, he definitely feels that way about fishing…big time! You’re hubby needs to treat himself to a day of it…even a few hours is good.
      Thanks Lauren…Hugs to you too! xoxo

  5. You did a great job, Deb. You did capture him in fishing mode 🙂 Date: Wed, 29 Aug 2012 23:58:21 +0000 To: kathrynmartins@hotmail.com

  6. What a handsome guy!

  7. Nicely done, Deb. [ah, yes Binky: a bit of Burt and a bit of Kevin Kline!]

    • Ha..I just told him that too.
      Thanks for the comment on my painting, Marina!…I appreciate it! 🙂

  8. Great picture Debs! 🙂

    Nice to finally meet the love of your life!!! 🙂

    Love and hugs to both of you!


  9. zawsze podziwiam wędkarzy za wytrwałość…..

  10. Haha, that’s my kinda guy there, fishing etc. I can imagine him saying the quote “A Bad Day of Fishing is Better Than A Good Day of Work”
    I live in the great lakes state and haven’t been fishing in a few years.
    Oh by the way, I installed the MyPaint program you recommended and plan to start playing with it. Awesome recommendation! Thanks!

    • I kind of had you sized up as someone who would want to fish…love’en the beach and all.
      That’s truly how he feels about fishing too, Scott. 🙂
      Oh, you must go, before it gets too cold out. What’s keeping you from it?
      You installed it! Good! You just fool around with it and you will begin to get the hang of it. If you want to know how I get certain effects on a painting I’ve done just let me know. But I do know this for sure…You’ll be good at it and I can’t wait to see what you produce in time. Mostly, just have fun with it! Your little one ought to love it too! ;-)…Oh, your welcome, my friend! Have a great day!:-) xo

  11. Poor dumb Mitch. Seems like he is casting in the sand instead of the water.

  12. Nice … only he is not smiling … give my love to Binky 🙂

    • When I paint a portrait it is not to get the exactness of the photo, but the to capture the likeness of the person….thanks Cat..Love and hugs.

  13. A wonderful likeness, Deb!
    And at 4×6? In watercolor?
    Even more-so!!!

    • Yes, it’s a small one. I had a time trying to do his face in such a small area to work with.. Thanks Sig, you always say such kind things about my work. 🙂
      Have a great day! 🙂

    This is brilliant Deb
    you have captured him
    really well in this one
    and I hope the fishing
    was also fruitful 🙂

    Have a fun rest of day Deb 🙂

    • I don’t think is was that day or I would have had a photo in the same batch with him and the fish. But he has fun even if he doesn’t catch anything, but catching if way better. 😉
      Thanks Andro!
      You have a fun rest of the day too! 🙂
      Hugs ♥ XXx

  15. Ahah love the quote and the watercolor. Very good job. I gotta agree with Andro. Mitch looks like Magnum 🙂

    I’m back, Deb. So glad. I’ve missed wordpress so much but needed to concentrate on my internship report.

    Big hugs.

    • This is so funny how so many of you are telling me what Hollywood figure he looks like. 🙂

      Glad your back, you need some rest from all the hard work.

      Big hugs back to ya, Cha! xo

      • Thanks Deb.
        I’ve been sick for a few days. I need some rest, you’re right. But now I think I’m officially back. Well… still one exam to take in two weeks but it’s gonna be okay. 🙂

  16. About time you painted him. My wife gets on my constantly that I never cartoon her.

  17. Nice to see Mitch make his debut on your blog. Did he catch any fish that day. I can’t wait to be able to wear shorts once summer comes & warms us up

    I bet you are ready for the wrestling
    lots of chocolates and something nice
    to whet your appetite as they fight it
    out in the ring 🙂 I wonder who will be
    the victor this evening Deb? 😉 🙂


    Androgoth XXx

    • Yes, I’m ready. We just got supper out of the way, and I got a big tub of chocolate Ice cream with my name on it, and Mitch can have some too if he’s good…lol kidding. 🙂
      I never really know for sure who will be the victor, but can guess pretty good at times, but surprises happen.
      I can let you know who won each match if you want.
      I got to get the dog’s bathed now. We were at the beach and there full of sand and their hair is all gunky.

      I certainly will enjoy! You have a a good evening, my great and wicked friend!
      Hugs ♥ XXx

      • Androgoth

         /  August 31, 2012

        Wow bathing the dogs and wrestling too 🙂
        Well enjoy your ice cream and do give Mitch
        a spoon too, he will be getting all naughty if
        you don’t share it 🙂 Kidding Deb…

        Have some wresletastic fun my great friend 🙂

        Andro XXx

        • Yes, bathing too…they were icky from the beach.
          Each had a big bowl…we were full. 🙂
          Wrestling night was fun. Tomorrow night is races for him, so more painting for me. Then wrestling again on Monday.

          Hugs ♥ XXx
