Waterside Still Life

I can’t seem to stop painting fishy still lives. This one was especially fun to put together, the fish spilling out across a nautical tablecloth. The fish sometimes look like they’re swimming through the scene. The other fabric in this painting has some orange coi in the pattern, repeating the fish idea, but in a flatter, more simple representation.
