fish wish ....or one fish, two fish, here's a big fish......


yippeeee .... i've finished this fish collage / assmeblage finally! ... well... it isn't even actually done....i need to black the edges, write on the back, sign it, hardware it for hanging .... but, you know what i mean .... i finished the hard part!!! i've had that big fish finished for ages, so i'm used to him ... but just figured out the wee fish yesterday and finished them this morning .... i'm quite happy ....... the fresca fish are particularly groovy to me ...... all that said, i have some close ups and detail shots on my flickr site ...... here, here, and this one too.......

.... and here is a preview of something else i've been working on.... i didn't think to take a pic of it til i had already ripped it apart....... a herb poster ... and a poultry poster... don't you have those just sitting around in your art room ....... i am turning them into backgrounds... so far i've just stared on the herbs.......

the groovy thing about these posters is that they are from my brother in england..... apparently their newspaper, the guardian, puts posters in the papers...i think just when the kids are out of school...not every single day........with some fairly out there subjects...these are sort of usual ones.....but all the muscles of the legs and feet.......or......waterfowl of england...... anywhoooooo, whilst in england, r asked meeeee if i'd like some.....apparently he has the strong need to keep them and collect them...but you only need so many posters of heirloom tomatos....... and beef cattle....... i think my nephew has a dinosaur one up in his room....... anyway...he offered them to me.....and i ...shhhhhhh.....did not tell my luggage toting husband that i took a big ole stack of them and stashed them away at the bottom of a suitcase!!! .... but, happily...i have them .... and now am using them......hurrah....... stay tuned
