well, it looks like christmas, it smells like christmas, so,

what’s up with the fish….? These guys have nothing to do with Christmas except perhaps to put a smile on your face. As a sketch, they later became ‘pins’ using Studio Cloth from USArtQest. Most of today was spent painting – but these were a fun ‘relief’ from the seriousness of a ‘real’ canvas. –… Continue reading well, it looks like christmas, it smells like christmas, so,
