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.

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

Lorraine said...

Annie said...

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

Jackie said...

This is stunning - I love it!

Bill said...

I've always loved little fishies! I love the shades of pink and purple you used against the turquoise background.

Sonya Batten said...

Wow, love the effect of your painting. Really beautiful. I could see this in a holiday home by the beach here in Australia or in my bathroom...lovely.
