Yellow but not Mellow


#323/365 Paintings

This is one of those sad stories.

This is a girl fish who really wanted to be a boy fish. The kind of boy fish people people who cannot get pregnant on their own pay top dollar for. But alas, she was born a real fish. A real yellow fish. And it’s rumored that girl fishes are a bit slow moving and lazy. But not her. She has the fast swimmer, purpose filled rigor to her personality. She’s super fast and active in the sea. She’s trying to fill new dreams since her original dream went sideways.

In fact, right now, she’s gathered millions of fish to spell this out for you in the sea: H A P P Y  T H A N K S G I V I N G.

The fish are grateful today you aren’t eating them.

    The way she’s silhouetted there, in that blaze of fuchsia, she looks like a broadway diva in a long dress that just stepped out into the spotlight to sing her song that will slow the world down and make it stop and listen.

    She doesn’t need to worry about her gender. She is out in front, no matter who she is.
