Fish Paint

This last 5 x 9 foot canvas was unfinished at the bottom, right side and several fish shapes in the middle. The Aquarium of the Pacific produced 30 canvases for Art Miles day last month, students, members and staff painted sea life and some created images to remind people actions have reactions on our environment.

Adults had as much fun as the children. Art should be fun.

The starfish holding the peace symbol and the colorful whale top left might be my favorites on this canvas. All of the canvases were special.

My treat to finish this canvas at home. Those blue and orange sea eels with the hood ornament leaf shapes on their mouth really do look like that. Ditto for the sea worms, white with yellow stripes.
