Plum Fish


This little fishy is cut out of origami paper, mounted on a piece of paper that I painted with many layers of acrylics, which is then mounted on a canvas-covered Italian panel -- which I also painted.

Major layer sandwich.

Deceptively cute and colorful. But all those layers give it surprising subtlety.

Overall dimensions, 5 inches x 7 inches.

I've picked out some awesome frames for this series. The fish will be on display at the two upcoming shows this month: http://lifeneedsart.blogspot.com/2009/11/come-see-me-at-these-art-fairs.html
