Inspiration Avenue: Tropical


This week's theme at Inspiration Avenue  is "tropical" and I immediately thought of fish. For me fish are a symbol for joyful play (don't really know why) - so I just covered a 5x5 canvas (seems to be my favorite size at the moment) with some acrylic paints and punched and cut out fish - voilá! I just played around and had a lot of fun!

Great piece. The ocean and fish are a tropical treat. Love your fish, really like the little guy on the bottom. The background is great color and it makes all your fishes pop. Lovely piece.

It looks like fun and I can feel them swimming in the water between the sea weeds. Love all the color and brightness of it. WELL DONE!
