A couple of months ago I saw fishing lures in a store and thought they would fit right in with the things I usually paint: small, colorful, shiny. My dad used to fish, so I asked him if I could use some of his lures for a painting. He warned me that his lures were very old, but I was welcome to use them, and he gave me a box. A few were too ugly to use, but I was charmed by the others, and I especially liked their cracked paint jobs. They reminded me of dangerous little toys. I added some of my most feminine jewelry, and I like how it resembles bubbles and underwater plants.
Wow, this encourages me so much to work harder! Your understanding of color and light is outstanding!
Awesome concept and brilliantly painted!
this is breath taking! its absolutely amazing
I'm floored by this piece. I'm a complete novice with watercolors which means that your work, particularly this one, leaves me gawking in a weird combo of awe and befuddlement. Thank you for sharing.
May I ask how big the original is?
So sweet of you to comment! It's my current favorite. This one is 20"x26". I've been painting for 30 years, so I guess this is what happens when you put in that kind of time.
