Fishy Christmas Greeting

Fish Christmas Greeting
1/4 sheet watercolor & gesso

The thought behind this painting is that I was born in March and a Pisces (fish) on the astrology charts.  It is rather hard to tell but that is a hook in the fishes mouth carrying the Christmas globe.  Maybe I should paint lights on one of the trees?  Anyway, it was fun painting it. 

The reference photo for the fish is from the Wet Canvas Image Library.  Thanks for looking.

This fish painting is absolutely beautiful. I love the background blues and greens it really sets the orange fish.

Thanks all of you. No it isn't framed but maybe it will be by next Christmas. :smile:
