Looking for the Little Fishies is based on a morning spent with a bag of breadcrumbs at the quarry behind a friend’s house in Gloucester, Massachusetts. It was June, and the inquisitive little fish were only too happy to surface for bread crumbs. They never stopped moving, however, so photographing them was catch as catch can. While I was focused on the fish, a frog happily sat on a rock just 18 inches away, partially submerged, and kept me company for at least three hours. I can’t tell you how many fish are in the painting – you’ll have to count them yourself. I can say the pattern of floating leaves, reflections, and shadowy fish can become hypnotic. Detail below. Enjoy.
