Now and then, I do something I find wildly entertaining. That was the case with ‘Fish on a Ferris Wheel’. It consisted of 10, 2×3 hand painted fish on a manually rotating wheel. Every tiny fish was a different color. It was a great conversation piece and spinning it was fun too!
Someone found it equally entertaining and bought it last weekend. She really loved it. It was one of those piece I hated to see go, but I’m happy it found a good home.
You never know what will sell in this business. To my amazement, I still have ‘The Catch of the Day’. So many complements on this one, but I think it needs a special home: maybe a restaurant or on the wall of someone who boats or fishes. If you are (or you know of) that person, do I have a special deal for you!
This was a rescue frame from the 1950’s or 1960’s found at an estate sale. It is a heavy piece of wood and it was a mess. It hung vertically, was painted black and not in the best of shape. It had three, little recessed framing areas that when purchased tht had the remains of some family photos pasted on them. They were peeling. For me, it became a tryptic: Three segmented works that create one.
I painted the frame to resemble water. Then I painted three, 4×6 canvases to complete my fish. It goes without saying that I love color and it was never going to be boring! Pick it up at the special price of $125, or add $40. for shipping anywhere in the continental US.
Don’t let this be the one that gets away! Complete the contact form above and I will send payment details or answer any questions you may have.
I love recycling frames, so when I came across this at an estate sale, I bought it.
Introducing the one and only, “Fish on a Ferris Wheel”.
There are a total of ten, hand painted an signed fish all in different hues. Yes. It does spin around, though I would be a little more careful with it! “Fish on a Ferris Wheel” would be a delight on your desk!

Sometimes I paint something I really like. This is one of those. I often mentioned that I get a lot of my frames at estate sales. This one hadn’t sold and they were tossing it. Debbie to the rescue!
I brought it home and probably looked at it for a month before deciding what I would do with it. It was likely from the 1950’s and it’s a heavy solid wood black frame. The edges are slightly scalloped and the indentations give it a 3D effect. I love doing tryptics, three separate paintings with a continuous flow. I thought that with a few modifications, it would be the perfect frame. First, it was meant to hang vertically. That didn’t work for me, so I removed the brass hanger and changed it to a horizontal plane. Then I bought three, 4×6 canvases. I thought it cried for a fish and viola! The project was finished.
I’m still working on that other project and it looks like it’s going to take a lot longer than I thought. It’s been a case of paint….gesso over it….paint again. The trials and tribulations of an artist!
Meanwhile, I’ve added a few more “Little Debbie’s”, you know….those very affordable paintings under 5×7. “Angel Holding Flowers” is the newest.
I pick up a lot of vintage and unloved smaller frames at estate sales. That’s where most all of the frames used in “Little Debbie’s” are born. With each frame, I attempt to paint something that ‘fits’ that frame. Above, it is a silver (Yes. I know. It looks like gold, but it’s not) metal frame.
