Little Blue Betta Fish

Here is my Little Blue Betta Fish painting.  Painted with acrylic on a 3x3 inch canvas.  
Available in my etsy shop.

I really enjoyed painting this one with all the pretty colors.  I think the next one I do will be a red betta fish.  I already have the canvas sketched out and ready and I am excited to start.

Have a wonderful day,

Mongo Betta Fish

 I painted today, and here is Mongo Betta Fish.  It is 3x3 inches in acrylic.  Mongo is my daughter's fish and he lives in his fish bowl on the wall unit in the living room.  I have been taking pictures of him without the flash.  It's so much fun!

I thought I'd show you the sketches I did quickly this morning.  I plan to do more Betta fish paintings in different colors.

Blue Froggy Original Painting

Blue Froggy
4x4 inch stretched canvas
You can find it in my etsy shop for $40.00 US

Blue Froggy is latest painting.  We went to Sea Life at the Mall of America to take some pictures for my paintings.  Wouldn't you know it, when I tried taking pictures I found that my battery was dead.  Bummer!  I was able to take some pics with my cell phone, which isn't very good.  So even though I can't use any of them for my Photo Zazzle Shop, they are good enough to zoom in and use them as reference for my paintings.

 We decided to take a Behind the Scene Tour, and it was just my husband and I and the tour guide.  I learned and saw some really cool things.  Did you know that an octopus has to be in a secure tank, because they have the intelligence of a 3 year old, and can lift off the cover to escape.  Ya, one did.  The fish in the next tank started disappearing, and they discovered that the octopus they had there at the time, let himself out of his tank, crawled out and across the floor to the other fish tank.  He proceeded to have a snack and crawled back to his tank and put the lid back on.  Unfortunately they didn't have any octopus there when we were there. 

Have a safe and awesome weekend!

Springs Morning

Here's my latest finished painting.  It's created with pan pastels and a bit of colored pencil.  I love how the butterfly turned out.  It's 9x8.

Soon it will be in my zazzle and etsy shops.
