    Beautiful! This island looks like a giant fish swimming towards the shore! You certainly know how to paint water very well Joseph. What size would this painting be?

  • hmmm does look a bit like a giant cat fish wriggling across a shallow pond doesn’t it? (how do you see these things?) …may be I’ll call it “Fish-ta-Shore”.. good idea Lynda dear. It’s a big fish , I’d say maybe 24 by 30 ish. Take Care.

    magnificent! this really caught my eye, the colour is amazing!

  • Thanks Karin, for your magnificent comment! I really appreciate it ..and this is one I was truly inspired to paint the colors of the water( as well as the island)..color was my main focus here so I left this rendered almost as an illustration composition wise.
