Added to my 'dot' aquarium
I decided since my other large 'dot' fish found new homes, I needed to try a couple more. Once again these are on the large scale, between 3'-4', and was cut out of 3/4" MDF with my jigsaw. Each one I seem to add more and more depth with them, trying to create more of a 2D sculpture. The dots on 'Stripes' was a bit of a challenge as I had to approach each of the different stripes separately, letting them dry and then dotting around them. Added a couple extra days to the painting, but I think the final results were worth it. Hopefully they will swim out of my shop and find a new home soon ;-).
Thanx for looking, any and all comments are welcomed.
A day in my shop is like a day at the beach...full of sunshine and ya never know where the sawdust may end up!

Hey Kim - I'm with Jim, my patience would have broken long before completing one of the fins! Beautiful pieces that really do look spectacular!

You have outdone yourself. Great colors and you really nailed the eyes. Spot on....<wink>

I have to ask, how do you make those? And how long does it take to complete one? Years?
