There's Something Fishy Going On....

... fish have taken over my blog.  I'm really happy with todays selection, everything looks really good - well done fishy makers!

And if you're wondering, my little boy was a little angel at the dentist yesterday.  The receptionist found a fire engine for him to play with and he happily pushed it up and down the sofa in the waiting room.  The dentists was so much fun he didn't want to leave.  So I was worrying about nothing.

'Fish Medley' Original Abstract Watercolour by JamiePattersonArt
£40.60 (+ free delivery)
Fish Medley is an unframed original semi abstract watercolor painting of a shoal of fish. The painting is presented on a piece of watercolor paper 21cm by 17.5cm, with a 1cm white margin, which lend itself well for positioning purposes in a mount for framing.  Fish Medley was created by firstly applying layers of blue and green washes letting them dry, and then adding the little squares afterwards. Finally the semi silhouetted fish were added to complete the painting.
