Default You got fins to the left, fins to the right...

No Jimmy Buffet is not in town...sorry Parrotheads - lol! I thought I would show you the latest fishies I have added to my collection, just in time for my area's largest festival. These are all my own original designs, some using clipart as a beginning point.

The first one is 'Liquid Barb Wire' (shown in WIP), a series of Stingrays created from MDF using additive/subtractive method - three layers of 3/4" stock and then sanded. Each Stingray measures roughly 9" x 14", with overall sculpture 37" x 17", 7" Deep. Stingrays were mounted to a base using dowel pins. Included photos of several different views.

Next is a Sailfish. This was done similar to the Stingrays, however instead of spray paint I added dots - imagine that - lol! Dimensions 29" x 23", 3" Deep

Another finished piece is a Queen Triggerfish. This was created from 3/4" MDF once again. I cut the first layer using the outline. I included heavy fret lines in the fins. Second layer was for the head/body, in which I included fretwork around the eyes and painted the 'inside walls' with bright colors. Added a fin, lips and some detail lines in the tail and sanded it all. Used a splatter spray paint technique to add the color. Dimensions 26" x 14", 2-1/2" Deep

Last piece is 'Green with Envy'. Once again using 3/4" MDF and painted with 5,689 dots...just kidding...I have no clue how many blessed dots are on this beast. Took almost three full days of dotting! Dimensions 32" x 24"

Thanx for letting me share and any comments and/or suggestions are welcomed.

Kim you need an Art Gallery to show those. Awesome.... just plain incredibly awesome. Does the local news media and art guilds realize your talent is so great? It's fun to see what you are going to make next. Thanks for sharing your talent and ideas with us.
