Fish Wish

Acrylic collage

I had the idea first for this motif and played around with painting the watery background before adding the shapes. My first attempt wasn’t successful and I had to redo it. The resulting marbled effect is what I’d planned on. The yellow tabby with lavender stripes breaks up the solid coat of the cat. I also tried to get the cat’s expression looking wistfully at the fish with his green eyes as they float past.
