We had high hopes when we entered out Fish Tales piece in the exhibit at the Art Center in May. We really liked it, and it turned out that a lot of other people did too. We got over 10% of the total votes in the first few days. Then it sold, so no more votes.
But the gift gallery manager asked if we could make another, to be displayed at the June opening. We didn’t win the prize, but we made a better version that Steve has named “Joy To The Fishes”. He’s getting really good at making the fish, and I’m getting better with the ‘paint with powder’ method. This one is on display at the Art Center now.
We’ve got three more smaller versions in the works.
