Fish and HELLO to 3 new members!

Again I can greet 3 new members to my blog - you make me happy! 

Andrea



Thanks for joining and I hope you visit often and like what you see. 

And here is the picture I choose for you:



It is a two-ton, 13 by 11-foot marble mosaic by Hildreth Meiere, depicting Hercules sailing past the Rock of Gibraltar. It is now in the Newark Museum. The mural was composed in 1959 and was first installed in the lobby of Prudential Financial’s corporate headquarters in downtown Newark, where it remained until 1999. (The Rock of Gibraltar is Prudential’s corporate symbol.)
And just for the fun of it - when you visit my new members you can find out why I picked this piece of art for my greeting.

Dabbling in a different style..... Not sure why..... Wanted to make something different, I guess. And that's what came out of it. A fish card. I actually like fish. I enjoy watching them in an aquarium or out in nature - very enjoyable and meditative. Never mind - I also like to eat them.




I am participating in the All Sorts Challenge with this card -the theme is animals, so here we go. No sentiment here - its in Japanese (haha - lets pretend it says - FWishing you well!). The water droplets are from Ryn Tanaka, the school of fish are Papersource and the framed fish I have no idea - (perhaps Stampsmith). I spritzed this with Adirondack color wash and put tiny droplets of glossy enamel onto the water droplets.I hope you like it - I kind of do.
