This step stool was a commission for a little girl named Lucy, It was so much fun to paint. Fish are so colorful! All the fish I painted are based on real sea life, except for the Mermaid (of course!). I included a wide variety of fish such as a Clown fish, a Tiger fish, gold fish and an Octopus. I also painted some Jelly fish, Angel fish, Sea Anemones, Starfish, a Sea horse and a Sea Turtle.
Another fun request from a client!! Who knew Octopi could be so colorful, changing colors like a chameleon. This Caribbean Octopus is painted on the slats on the top level of a three shelf shoe rack. I eased the color down the sides of the slats so that even viewed from an angle the picture is continuous. Final destination of the piece is a summer home in the Caribbean, how perfect!
