Introducing my newest painting:
"Chris' Sheepshead."





This painting is based on a beautiful Sheepshead fish that my husband caught in Rockport, Texas. (YUM!)  As I painted this fish I kept in mind my idea from the last painting (Seeing Through the Trees) which was that I want to explore using more layers of objects so that the viewer has a lot of things to see through.  In this painting I overlapped water, dock, net, and fish as I explored this idea more.  I really like how it turned out.  

PS: I almost included this fish in my painting "Our Fishin' Spot in Rockport Texas" but as I painted it I decided that the dock looked better without anything on it.

Detail of the painting.
"A  painting lives by companionship, expanding and quickening in the eyes
of the sensitive observer.  It dies by the same token.  It is therefore a
risky & unfeeling act to send it out into the world."
