SPEED DATING FOR FISHES

The "Three Muses" challenge has asked us to make artwork with an eye or eyes on it.
The "Order of the Opus Gluei" has asked us to look deep in the ocean.

Some of these fishes seem a little shy, or maybe it's quite difficult keeping up with your allotted partner for five minutes when there is an ocean current.




The middle pair look as if they are never going to get together, the two top right are more interested in chatting to each other than to their partners and I'm not quite sure what is going on with the four at the bottom.  The plumper one is possibly bored and may be rolling her eyes and the slim pink one and her diagonally opposite are definitely eyeing each other up.

  1. Hi Sheila!
    I love your fishes!! And the colors you have choosen. I think this would be a great wall picture. I is kind of calming down. Because of the middle line I think you have done it in your journal not on an inchie. Right?
    Ciao Beate

  24. Great fishies, Sheila! I love all the color. This technique you use with your paintings that gives the subjects a frizzy edge is very cool. I very much enjoyed your scenario of what might be going on. You'd make a great councelor for fishies. LOL
