Big Boy


9×12 original pastel on sanded paper, $225, framed, plus shipping

I love the angle on this painting.  I was looking down into the water when I noticed this big boy, a goldfish that had grown to fit a nice sized custom-designed backyard pond.  The owner attested to the fact that he had purchased large quantities of fish food to feed his friend.  I was challenged to paint the fish in its habitat, with water swishing and swirling atop him.
