Daily Painting 1291 Crab Dinner fish painting

Its oil on archival mat board, 5 x 7 inches. I had this painted and a relative comes over and admires it. He points out some details and smears the painting so I had to fix it. Another painting that was hard to name!

Daily Painting 1290 View from the Beach Hammock

Its oil on plywood, my mind is a blank right now! Can't think of a title. Woke up with a horrible headache this morning, forgot to drink my usual evening coffee yesterday. I felt muggy all day, plus its 95 degrees out. This is the Indian River Inlet before all the condos grew up there. A bit of my imagination is there too. The painting is 11 x 14 inches,

Daily Painting 1288 SOLD Party Colors Fish Painting

SOLD Its oil on archival mat board, 5 x 7 inches. The background was pretty dark on this one so I thought I would get out some nice bright colors for the fish. Then I thought it looked like they had party colors on.

SOLD Daily Painting 1286 SOLD I'm Crabby are You?

SOLD Actually I am relieved the painting is finished! I painted it and thought it was done. Hubby points out her one eye and claw aren't reading well so I get out my paints and tiny brush and poke and prod at it for awhile, seeing other things that need fixing too. So I get the camera out and then look at my photo of the painting and see some other stuff wrong, get out the brush and paints, made sure it was signed.

Painting this crab brought back some memories, when I was around 12 we went across the river to Little Mud Creek. We had some chicken parts and some nets, we would throw the parts into the river and the crabs would come to eat and we could net them up. My mother would cook them and we had them for dinner. Very sweet tasting.

The painting is 5 x 7 inches oil on archival mat board.

Daily Painting 1284 SOLD Violet Coral Fish Painting

SOLD I loved how the background on this one came out, I kept finding more coral to paint in. I did it awhile ago and finally figured out what fish to paint. It is a blue headed wrasse.

Daily Painting 1283 Rainbow Reef Fish Painting

I could have sworn I posted this one already, I was looking through my file and found it. I did it at the Art Bank on some of their open studio nights. I did the background first , let it dry, and then come back and see what I see in it. If I am lucky the fish hint that they are there and I just have to paint them the rest of the way in. They are fantasy fish, out of my head, the big ones look a bit like snook, haven't had any of that in years, snook are one of my favorite fish to eat. Maybe a bit of wishful thinking on my part.
