Bruce McCorkindale Cover Re-Creations
Another area of art collecting interest for me has been "cover re-creations." Bruce McCorkindale's cover re-creations are so accurate, they could easily pass for the real thing. I was dumbfounded when I first saw them. Since I have used hunting and fishing metaphors for my collecting passions and philosophies, I regard these splendid re-creations as my version of collecting "duck decoys." Each one saves me $80K or more on what the real thing would cost, and they are just a lot of fun. I still get a real "art rush" from looking at them.
