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.

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. :)

Well, I can't even imagine where the next 30 years will take you.  Somewhere totally awesome I'm sure.  Keep up the inspiring work!
