I have just finished work on my latest piece , "Nautilus". If the truth be told I am always working on more than one piece at any one time. This particular piece has been about three different paintings or shall I say "I had intentions for it to be two different things". First it was going to be the Golden Fisherman and then a lion fish. I am sure one day I will get the Golden Fisherman painted, the question is when? We will see. This work is available for purchase. If I don't sell it this week, I think I am going to enter it into the SRRA spring art show. I would love to sell it, but I would also like to put it in the show. I guess only time will tell. When I began this painting it started out as an abstract of gold, bronze, nickel azo and burnt red orange. As it progresses I utilized some negative shade painting techniques. They say every great painting was an abstract at some time. This 30 x 48 acrylic on canvas would look stunning in a beach front condo or beach house.
