Ever since I was lucky enough to spend two weeks on a fishing boat in the Caribbean and learned to snorkel, tropical fish have amazed me. It was magical to witness these vivid colored and various shaped fish gliding along as if choreographed in a backdrop of coral in light dappled aqua water.
I painted Caribbean Dreaming a couple of winters ago during a cold spell to lift my spirits. I find it freeing to paint fish because pretty much any thing goes, you can play by layering colors as the fish starts to appear and the background can also be just as colorful and layered.
This year January has been unseasonably warm but cold weather is sure to come for a bit and I will definitely take time to paint a new fish.
