Cat-Fish

Cat-Fish: Acrylic and metal leaf - 9"x9"

Since I was small, I have liked fish. I think it stems partly from Dr. Seuss books like One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish and McElligot's Pool. I always enjoyed the drawings in those books and remember carefully copying them when I was eight or nine years old. I also love to go fishing. My dad was a big fisherman and we fished a lot when I was growing up. My Dad, my brothers and I would take three day trips to fish the trout rivers in southern Montana, fishing hard from sunup to sundown. I still love it, but don't get out as much I would like. This picture was done for fun and to experiment with texture and different mediums like the metal leaf.
