Golden Fish is my first truly "personal" piece in ages... I was lying in bed trying to fall asleep one night and this would not leave my head. After fighting it a good hour, I decided to get up and sketch it out....only then did the glowing fish in my head go away! =)

Love the colors. That boat is so fantastic, with the unique sail and the hanging lantern.

Oh my word! :)

Such exquisite beauty and I love the way the over- and under-water layers work very well and complement each other with such vibrant life and colour!

I wish I was in that boat :)

Thank you for sharing such truly wonderful art, my friend! :)

the water is delicious. its a great idea that you got up and sketched it, I cant remember how many 'good' ideas I had on the edge of sleep and repeated them to myself saying, ok like this and with that, and I will remember and the blue ... ok got it... but in the morning it was gone except for remembering that I had an idea. which is awful, if you forget something good it would be better if you forgot you had a good idea int he first place. this is fantastic the light is wonderful
