I looked around and realised that I actually paint a lot of fish! There are goldfish in the living room, koi under autumn leaves and goldfish lanterns in the family room, and a surrealistic azalea and koi painting in one of the guest bedrooms.
And, although I drew myself a steampunk fish on some handmade paper,
I wanted to do something a bit different.
Chloe has been having some fun with wire wrapping crystals and left the wire and pliers in my studio, so I thought I would give a try with a little wire sculpture.
C’s wire plus a few beads and voila! Here are my two fish:
I took them outside to photograph them in the morning sunshine. I love how they sparkle.
I think maybe they might end up on the Christmas tree among my collection of glass ornaments, but for now, I think they’ll hang out on the grapevine wreath above the fireplace.
Come on over to Sabine’s and check out everyone’s ideas.
