"Sushi"




















6 x 6 oil on masonite
SOLD

This weeks DSFDF assignment was a breeze compared to
the last one! Whew! Couldn't help imagining that one
of the Soy Sauce splatters looked like a little fishy escaping
his fate so I went with it. Perhaps this is a peek of my stunted
creativity as it's trying to push it's way back out after long years
of inactivity.
Karin seems to bring the creative juices out in all
of the participants. I always
look forward to seeing what she has
in store for us next!

Very creative, Gwen! That little fish is a real catch (eye catcher)in this painting.

Gwen,
Thanks for visiting my blog! I wa thinking about trying this week's challenge and now that I see your painting I am REALLY intimidated! Your painting is incredible. Absolutely beautiful. Would you believe that when I first opened your blog I though you had posted the "original photo"? Glad to have found you.

Thanks for visiting my blog, Gwen! This lovely sushi rendition makes me hungry! I like your bunnies (we have one) and your shepherd (grew up with one) and other works too....We have a lot of the same favorite subjects in our paintings! Hope you don't mind if I follow your blog.

This is the truest imagery of the soy sauce and I really struggled with mine - excellent Gwen!

Very nice job! I agree that this challenge was much easier than the last one!
Thank you for your comments on my "What do you do when you get stuck?" post. I wish I had the magic answer! If I figure it out, I'll give you a call and we'll do an infomercial and make millions! :)
