I have to admit, the art I am sharing with you this week tickles my funny bone. Perhaps some think art should not have levity, but I disagree. I believe art needs to bring some of the elements that humans most need in their lives: beauty, inspiration, insight, a glimpse of God, relaxation and humor.
Of course you know I’m picking the funny route.
So for this piece I turned a miniature tin into a wooden crate containing fish that someone ordered for their dinner party.
Except the fish, wearing hats, drinking martinis and blowing party horns, might not be what was expected. Even the clown fish are a little different.
The tin contains an accordion fold paper with five panels.
I create a mixed media scene on both sides of each of the five panels.

But wait–there’s more! To entice you to visit my shop, I am offering an entire sheet of colorful high resolution fish as a free download. Just place it into the shopping cart and download it for free. I hope you take a minutes to check out my other offerings as well.
