“Vigilant” Acrylic and Watercolor on Canvas

Well, after a week of playing with some loose acrylic paintings on paper, I returned to fish. This one is painted on canvas and has a watercolor background with an acrylic painted clownfish. Earlier this month, I went to a great local pet shop – Animal House – and received permission from the owner to take photos of some of the critters there.

Here are some photos of the sides of the canvas, so you can see that the painting extends around the 1 1/2 inch edges.

Speaking of Animal House, their sign was one of the first my husband designed and painted – almost 30 years ago! I helped out and painted the parrots. I remember we had a blanket in the grassy yard nearby so our baby girl could play while we worked.

Come visit again soon, I’m sure there will be more paintings to come from this photo safari!
