I had this image in my mind for a long time. I finally painted it for a past gallery show.

Daily Deviation

Given 2011-02-21
Caught by *themicawber is both surrealistic and gorgeous. The concept is really original, and the execution, impressive! ( Suggested by Mau-Acheron and Featured by Atramina )

Thank you! Yes, I sell prints and have sold originals in art shows. A digital painting generally takes me anywhere from 5-10 hours...depending on the complexity of it. :)

This is very eyecatching, and I spent some time dwelling on the theme/message of the piece.

I really don't know what to think of it except that it's pretty in a macabre way, and definitely esoteric. I thought it could be a comment on the things women do for beauty (rose petals, skeleton umbrella, gills which look like ribs, overall wraithlike appearance) but it doesn't really explain the fish hook, nor the opposition between the girl and a fish versus the rest of the fish.
Reply
:iconcrystalwalllancaster:
The hook represents the aim behind woman's obsession with her own beauty, it's the "catch"...love. The fish represents the opposition, the need for her to stand out, playing on the common phrase, "plenty of fish in the sea." It certainly can be seen as slightly arcane, BUT mostly it's just a vision that came to my head and my execution of it. ;):)
