Fins and Flora

Back in April, I finished up a this painting on canvas to include in my Featured Artist show at Art In The Valley Gallery. It is hanging there still, with several other pieces from that show for another month. It’s painted on smoothly primed canvas with a watercolor background.

I used acrylic paint for the fish. My models were some of the fish I photographed at our local pet store.
