CLAYTON—Broderick Crawford can often be found at his painting easel in the front window of the art gallery he operates on Main Street with his wife Michele, working on his latest wildlife painting.
On any given day, chances are he’s painting a fish or fowl that might someday appear on a state license plate, like painting he did a few years ago that was selected to appear on the Georgia Trout Unlimited tag, which proclaims in large capital letters, “GO FISH!”
His talents are not being confined to the state of Georgia, however. He’s recognized nationwide as a top painter of wildlife.
Recently, the Rabun County native had not one, but two of his paintings selected to be featured on the trout stamps issued to fishermen in both Delaware and Iowa.
“It’s a national competition,” Crawford said. “It’s open to artists from all across the nation. We are just fortunate to win it.”
