Fig Street Studio Shop At Cafe Press

Cafe Press created a widget that is supposed to display my products there but it seems to show things I do not really want to display. Here it is, do a comment as to what you think of it. It is simple but does not let me control what products are displayed in it.

Make New Orleans Gifts at CafePress.

I have so many items for sale there yet the widget places things in it I have never sold, or are sold old I haven't sold them in years. It should display the most sold or popular items and not just some random selection with no real thought to it. So i will have to still just post things here the old fashion way by writing a blog post with html code to capture items that do sell and are popular or new.

Items Sold the last 90 days but not one in the widget??

Art In The News: Giant Alligator Gar Caught in Mississippi Lake:

Giant Alligator Gar Caught in Mississippi Lake

 Big news in North Mississippi when a fellow fisherman caught which is believed to me the largest Alligator Gar. Here in South Louisiana growing up we would perch ourselves on the Lake Pontchartrain shore and fish late at night for gar. No one ever ate them but the scales were used like jewels and glued onto things. Some say the earlier settlers here used the scales as arrow heads too. Later on when I began canoeing I would find that fisherman would discard large gars along the sides of bayous. Once I discovered many dead caucuses of gar fish in one spot. Seems a cat-fisherman would find them on his lines and just stack them in one spot on the bank.

 As with most of my art I paint, draw, design from my life here in Louisiana and my child hood growing up. Things that stay in my memory like finding that large stach of dead gar cauces on the bayou bank. In honor of the Alligator Gar I did a simple design that actually sells well on the web at Zazzle. Click the image to see the details of that design.

Here is a link to all my Alligator Gar designs:

 Info on Alligator Gar from Wikipedia: 

" Alligator Gar ("Gator Gar"), Atractosteus spatula, is a primitive ray-finned fish. Unlike other Gars, the mature Alligator Gar possesses a dual row of large teeth in the upper jaw. Its name derives from the alligator-like appearance of these teeth along with the fish's elongated snout. The dorsal surface of the Alligator Gar is a brown or olive-color, while the ventral surface tends to be lighter. Their scales are diamond-shaped and interlocking (ganoid) and are sometimes used by Native Americans for jewelry."
