I do love painting fish, but I think it’s time for me to move on to other creatures of the sea and land. In the meantime, I hope you enjoy, “Lost at Sea”. This was created for an upcoming exhibit. Details to come!
Now and then I paint something that exceeds my expectations. These did just that. These were created for an upcoming exhibit and are not currently for sale. More on that to come. In the meantime, I thought you might enjoy them here.
Just when you thought you’ve seen it all! First, there was my Fish Ferris Wheel, a moveable contraption where ten, hand painted fish a resided on a rotating wheel. That little gem was sold a few weeks ago.
Now there’s “The Desktop Aquarium” – nine, hand painted fish mounted in individual gold frames, all part of a single, foldable display that will look terrific on the desktop or the dresser of anyone who loves colorful fish.
If you are planning to do your holiday shopping later, you might be waiting for Christmas, 2022 to get that special gift from a shipping container. Or, you can support a local artist and give your loved one the gift of original art. =
Desktop Aquarium is not currently for sale. It is part of an upcoming exhibit. Please visit our virtual gallery above to see the many paintings available for purchase.
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.
Several months ago, I started a new website, DeborahBoydGallery.com. My original idea was to have only original fine art and home decor items designed and painted by me. Own A Debbie would be available for reprints and fun things like handbags, clothing and the like, all inspired by my work.
The lazy part of me found it difficult to maintain both sites. The ambitious part of me knew it wasn’t working, so the obvious solution was to combine both sites. So, when you are looking for fine art giclee prints and unique items for you and hour home, all inspired by my work, this is where you go.
Check back often for current specials on the things you love. After all, everyone should Own A Debbie!
I continue to try to find something to produce a consistent body of work to no avail. I thought it was going to be fish, but then I digressed. Sometimes digressions are very cool!
Having said that, here are my two newest works. I really love these. Each measures 12×12 and is framed to 15×15. Seriously…can you picture these on a hard to decorate place in your home or office?
Coming soon….we are combining our Own A Debbie website with this gallery. We are currently putting this site together and will let you know when it’s up and running here. When it is, you will be able to order reprints and home decor, directly from here!
I’m constantly trying new methods to capture fish on paper and canvas, my idea of catch and release. I found a technique I’m have fun playing with and well…I went a little crazy painting them. These are markedly different from my usual, more abstract and brightly colored. The paint is slightly raised from the canvas, giving them a 3D look.
I tried this technique first on the 8×10. It exceeded my expectations, so I decided to fine tune the process and paint a second, larger one. Now it’s spawned a few little ones. “Picasso Jellyfish”, is the fish out of water here, but he is a cute little thing. I’m thrilled with the finished paintings.
Not your choice of fish? Check out two of my others below. They will make a grand edition to your home or office.

Let me be the first to admit it: I’m hooked on fish!
I’m having a blast painting fish of late. Having said that, my latest expedition is now hanging on my studio wall.
“A Trio of Fish” are three, wooden fish, painted with acrylics and each measuring approximately 23×3. The fish were secured at an estate sale about 20 years ago. A man there made them and couldn’t decide what to do with them. I was not an artist at the time, but I bought them, brought them home and put them in a closet. When I rediscovered them, I thought they deserved a bright future. By the way, I get that the orange clashes with the fish, but it’s the color of the walls in my studio.
Picture them swimming across your wall!
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!

“Potted Flowers” is just that: potted flowers. Sometimes I just want to paint something with a lot of character, but not a a lot of complication. While it is plain and simple, it does add a lot of character to a room. The original is a 12×12 acrylic on paper in a 20×20 frame. The original is on sale while you read this, for $125, plain and simple. No shipping. Must be picked up.
