No Goldfish Allowed - Original
This painting originated from a news story about people dumping their goldfish into the freshwater lakes when they are tired of taking care of them. These fish are carp and carp can grow very big. This then throws off the ecosystem.
The painting displays above and below the water. The serenity above with lily pads and lotus flowers. A beaver carrying grass in its mouth, a blue dragonfly and a frog sitting on the lily pads along with a painted turtle coming up for air. Ripples made by little fish or tiny insects in the blue water.
The below water scene is a flurry of activity with minnows, trout, sunfish, the rest of the painted turtle and also the rest of the beaver. It also has the hills and valleys of an underwater world with the movement of plants. All four sides are nicely painted and decorated.
This mixed media painting measures 18 X 36 on gallery wrapped canvas. It will come with a hanging wire installed and varnished to protect. I will sign it and include an informational paper about the painting and myself.
If you are close I will deliver it and if you live miles away I will send it through USPS wrapped securely. It will have corner protectors, and be wrapped in self adhering plastic wrap along with bubble wrap. If mailing it will also be in a cardboard mailing box.
If you have any questions about this painting please email me.
Lastly, thank you for your interest in my work, it means so much.
