Lionfish 1


Badge Awards

(2020), 18x26", Pencil and pastel crayons on grey paper.

I've always been fascinated by lionfish. If I go to an aquarium, that's usually the first tank I seek out (and seahorses and octopus!).

I know that in Florida they are an invasive species and are considered a nuisance fish, but I just couldn't help wanting to hang a pair in our living room.

I'm hoping to start its companion today, provided the rains let up and I can paint outside. Pastels in the house are just a cleaning nightmare waiting to happen!

They may be invasive but they are beautiful and you did a magnificent job of capturing that beauty.
