That is a really generous offer, and I know that artwork always attracts a lot of attention at the conventions.
I'm not sure how many you have in mind, but my suggestions would be:
Devils Hole pupfish
one of the springfishes (Crenichthys)
I can dig up pretty good pics for these I think. Please shoot me an email, firstname.lastname@example.org so I can email you some pics.

Those sound and look great! I'm gonna start another thread regarding this as to not hijack this thread. These would be paintings of fish in their respective habitat not just the fish. Me doing these will all be contingent on how much help I get from NANFA on gathering Quality reference photos of both fish and environment. I live in eastern PA so I doubt I will have any opportunity to photograph them myself in the near future. I hope we can make this happen.
I may also be interested in lending my skills on the art for the shirt design too. I know Casper said you guys usually like to have a different artist contribute for each convention shirt but I thought I'd offer a tentative maybe if need be.

There are a number of cool videos at http://desertfishes....eo/fishvid.html showing most of these fish in their natural habitats. It's been a while since I have looked at these and my connection at home isn't that great, but I'll take another look at them tomorrow. They likely won't show the fish in full color, but the habitat should be representative. We can probably find some good pics that show their color better.
