    :) Nice! Waiting for The Scream, LOL! Or did you already do that one?

  • It was suggested that I do “the Scream”, however, as strange as this may sound, I’m not sure the end result would be funny enough. I might have to have another look at it. Also, admittedly, I’m tending to chose paintings where the main characters are not directly facing the viewer, because fish are easier to recognize (and draw) when they are in profile. Thanks so much, Cindy! :)

    “Fin Go” if his ear was a fin! Brilliant, especially the bubbles coming out of his pipe! (but I do worry about you!!) :0)

  • Lol! Thanks so much! I didn’t think you were serious about my sanity. :) This whole series is for my next showing. It’ll be at a restaurant with tons of wall-space and I wasn’t given a whole lot of time to push out a bunch of paintings for it, so, I’m basically (and, almost literally) reaching for the stars. I guess it can be a little maddening, but, I’m accustomed to the work-style/load. Everything else in my life is going relatively swell (or, at least better than usual). Thanks for asking, though! …and I love the idea of “Fin Go”! I may have to borrow that title for his official wall-label.
