Stickleback Fish Watercolor
Hello friends! Well, I know I promised to post this a couple of days ago, but at this time of the month our internet service slows down a whole lot during normal daytime hours. So I happened to wake up a few minutes ago, and it is only 4:00 a.m. right now and decided now is as good a time as any to get this done! I went to bed early, and I don’t have to go anywhere today!
This Stickleback fish is one of the most challenging things I have ever painted. He is in a stream of course and most likely looking for food somewhere. Hopefully he won’t get hooked! (Derek, this is just for looking at, not eating! Although, out of curiosity, what kind of wine would go well with one?) As I stated in a previous post, this is for my friend Derek who also has a WordPress blog. He had a post about Stickleback fish a while back which is what gave me the idea to do this for him. (I hope you like it, Derek!)
In other news I began practicing my Chinese brush calligraphy yesterday, and I think I will be learning that for the rest of my life! Wow, it is difficult! I really want to find someone locally who does it and might help me so I don’t develop any bad habits! I don’t know if that will happen, but in the meantime, I will keep on keeping on!
I hope everyone is having a nice end to the summer months. We were able to leave our air conditioning off last night. As I type now there is a nice cool breeze coming through the window. Fall is on its way…I hope! We do sometimes get a few really hot days or weeks in September so I know the hot weather isn’t quite over yet. Well, I’m going back to bed!
Have a wonderful day, and give someone you love a big hug! 🙂
