My bro’ has a wedding ring with this design on it. He wanted a painting of it and so I made it, it took me a long, long time.
I wanted to give the fish a sense of the people they represented, and the children that came from that marriage. It’s a painting on a painting on a painting, there’s a lot to this painting that isn’t immediately obvious.
But then … that’s how I roll with most of my paintings. I believe they should hold your interest and continue to surprise, just like life.
