Fish or Bird?


#248/365 Paintings


The title of this piece was intended to be, “Adventures of an Unknown Artist” see the backwards collage piece in the fishe’s frontal lobe. ; )

But I discovered the fish by accident when I finished the bird painting and turned it upside down:

The bird with the little bird hung tightly inside it’s wing. So there you have it… I’m “art’s bitch,” not the other way around.

Have a wonderful day!

    Love the way this turn’s my head! Love what a great metaphor this is for so many things. Makes me want to look at life from all angles! Thank you for your daily dose of color and creativity and oomph!

      So true Sherry.. love what you are saying about the metaphor. I felt that way too. When I turned it upside down and saw the Fish. I was so surprised. And I wondered how many other things are delightful surprises when we look at them at a different angle.

    Amazing how that one works. The fish says more to me. Knowing your images, though, that bird will start talking within the hour.

      Yes, the fish says more to me too. It’s the upside down view. Isn’t that interesting…
      I think the fish will start talking to your new bunny soon. ; )
