He is a professional who is as true and real as his paintings.
Watertown, SD (PRWEB) November 27, 2012
Joshua Spies' painting, "Monashee Mountain Goats" was recently featured on the cover of the Northern Alberta Safari Club International newsletter.
"We chose Joshua's painting for our cover because his paintings look so real - more like a photo than a painting," Val Sansano, board member of the Northern Alberta Safari Club International Chapter and newsletter editor said. "He is a professional who is as true and real as his paintings."
Spies paints from his own real life experiences. He witnessed the scene featured in "Monashee Mountain Goats" on a hunting expedition in British Columbia.
Northern Alberta Safari Club International is an organization of hunters and outdoors people who are dedicated to promoting responsible use of natural resources.
