Through the Porthole
I really love these wooden plaques. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and they’re a lot of fun to paint. A friend had suggested turning some of my pendants into larger paintings, and this is the first one that I created, inspired by a porthole pendant I had made. Granted I didn’t go that much bigger; this guy measures 7″ across, but baby steps, right? One day I’ll definitely make some much larger paintings, but for now I like my more Jo-sized** works.
I quite like all the little fishes in this painting. I even snuck in a little Nemo near the bottom, though I think my favourites are the lionfish on the top right.
**Jo-sized is anything small, or anything that suits my size.. because well, I’m short. I blame my boyfriend for this phrase!
