An Untimely Death

Today's painting is so absolutely silly, that I had to share it. This 5x7 inch painting is the portrait of a goldfish given to my son by a friend. The fish came home in a plastic bag as pet fish do. He was given a name, placed in a proper fish bowl, and a suitable portrait was created. Unfortunately the fish met an untimely death, and by the time the paint dried on the portrait, he was forgotten. The portrait now hangs in my Etsy Gallery awaiting a new home where the face can be appreciated for generations to come by some other young fish lover. The ownership of this portrait can be yours for the sum of $50.00 plus shipping. Visit the gallery for more details or click for some closeups.

I love this little fish Nancy, and the story that went with it is priceless!

Children are so fickle--in love with something one day--forgotten the next. It was fun to paint, though not my usual subject matter.
