I often change directions in what I paint and how I paint. Most recently, I am intrigued in creating 3D art. I love things that appear to pop off the canvas or the board or whatever substrate I start with.
Once upon a time, we had an aquarium. We filled it full of expensive fish which died within days. We were so disillusioned – and not about to invest in more fish – that we left them in the aquarium until they floated and bloated. We created an interesting conversation p;iece we called our, ‘float fish’.
Given that I love a good aquarium, but I don’t have the knack to keep anything alive, I’ve decided to give this a shot. I thought it might be fun to create an aquarium where nothing ever died. It’s a project that’s going to take a good while to complete, but one I hope will be worthwhile in the end. I will keep you updated on my progress. Stay tuned!
For now, here is the humble beginning of Project Aquarium.
