6x6 oil on hardboard panel
My apologies to any ichthyologists out there if I've mislabeled this creature, but I'm pretty sure this is a Red Snapper. If I'm wrong please let me know. For most of my life the subject of my artwork was always animals, and always in watercolor, so when I decided to do "edible week" I saw it as an opportunity once again, to paint something with eyes. I found this specimen at the local farmers market, and thought it was really beautiful. If you'd like to bid on this painting, you can access the auction by clicking here.
