Goldfish As Helium Balloon - 6"x6"

Goldfish As Helium Balloon
acrylic on canvas


This is another take on the balloon goldfish. Why again?  This time I wanted it on canvas, rather than on watercolor paper. It's so much easier to hang that way.

And why helium goldfish? Why not? They're fun to imagine, and fun to paint.

Daily Painting

I've just joined Daily Paintworks, which is a fabulous art site.  There are some truly fabulous artists to be found there, and incredible art bargains. You should check it out.

I'll be posting art there several times a week, as well as here on the blog.

Also, I'm committed to doing my first art festival this year, so I'll be painting a lot of fun, small paintings. Because really, how many art festival attendees can afford to drop several thousands of dollars on paintings? So I'm working on small art that will range from about $35 to $75.

I'm applying to a few shows, and when I know if I am accepted, I'll post the news here.
