Yesterday I took a break from painting landscapes and did a fun little still life. This 8x10 inch oil painting was a delight to paint. The brilliant red of the Snapper especially attracted my attention. With their large eyes and sparkling scales, I couldn't help but have a little fun recreating them with paint. My father used to be a commercial fisherman and I spent many summers with him hauling in the lovely colors of the sea. This painting helps me recall those fond memories.
