Artist's Description

So you happen to find yourself in South America, lazing along the banks of the Orinoco (or lazing as much as one can while simultaneously keeping an eye out for wandering crocodiles), and you see a bubbling, a churning, a sudden turbulence on the surface of the water. “Pirahna!, you gasp. Now, while piranha are a distinct possibility along the Amazon and one certainly wouldn’t want to dangle ones toes therein, it may well not be a feeding frenzy you are witnessing, but rather the thrice- yearly Angelfish Championship. And if you could see under the water, it would most likely be Valenzia and her Angelfish Racer leading the peloton in this most elite of undersea competitions. Powered in part by Spindle, her trusty angelfish companion, Valenzia’s vehicle is a marvel of seashell engineering, and they have won the Trident Cup more times than anyone can remember, and they count the pink river dolphins among their many fans. At any rate, it’s a relief to know that Valenzia could certainly outpace any pack of ordinary piranha.

This 9 1/2” x 7 1/2” original collage depicting Valenzia and her Angelfish racer has been constructed of handcut vintage images upon a handpainted watercolor background and is accented with handmade art paper, skeleton leaf “seaweed”, small silver gears, a real starfish and tiny opalescent glass “bubbles” that sparkle subtly. There is also a real shell accent on Valenzia’s scallop hat. An amazing companion piece to Aurelia and her Jelly Cruiser, this piece is just luminous and is sure to add unspeakable panache and a sense of serenity to your study, bedroom or powder room.
