This piece represents all of the beautiful fish in the sea. All components of the fish-like shape are silhouettes of various types of fish, layered over one another, colored with watercolor to create one stained glass mosaic of such a gorgeous and life-sustaining animal. I love creating sections and pockets in which to paint a variety of different textures and colors. It’s a bit like a puzzle- what will that color look like next to this color? It’s a patchwork of creative color decisions and pigment match-making.
