in the swim

I love little goldfish and round fishbowls.
pve design - oil painting of gold fish -sold June 19,2011
I have been testing and braving new waters.
Each day I allow myself to get in the swim, painting things that inspire me.
This is how it starts and then I just keep doing laps, with the paint and my brush - one stroke at a time.
Hope things are going along swimmingly for you all.

Love the fish! and the bowl! I love them in painting form so much... In real life, not so much... I got stuck cleaning the smelly goldfish bowl for years... he was seriously the goldfish that would not die! Yes, I much prefer the painted version!

your goldfish is very pretty. I lost about 15 new additions (adopted from the school pond) in the last few weeks. some kind of virus got in the pond :( It makes me so sad.

I'm the type to dip my toe in the water before taking the plunge! Looks like you've lapped me... Love the goldfish and given our track record with the live ones, your painted one would last a lot longer!

LOVE the fish- it is the perfect colors and also a really fun subject to paint- he is so cute!!!

So wonderfully fresh! There is something almost Asian about this this. . . the looseness of the brushstrokes perhaps.

LOVE these! Especially after returning from a beach vacation, I can't enough of fish and other sea life imagery.
