What a great way to..........

begin the week! I sold my triptic print painting, "Under the Sea".  And it swam,... or rather flew across the Pacific to Hawaii to its new home.  Yay! I am very happy. Although I did enjoy looking at it and remembering how the paint went down and how it was to roll the paint over the fish for the printing step, I am really jazzed that someone enjoys it now in their home.  Actually she purchased it for her sister. How very nice that she bought it for a gift.
Several layers of paint were applied with brush, rubber fish, real shells, stones, cheese cloth, etc. to create this under-the-sea view. I really had fun experimenting with the paint. More is more, as they say. More paint, more texture, the more it seemed to look like I was really swimming with the fishes.

Made the smaller sections so that you could move them around in different order and the fish swim from one canvas to the others.  This was painted in 2007 for a Art teacher gallery show and has also been displayed in my home and in City of the World Art Gallery in Las Vegas.
