This is the most gorgeous watercolor of a fish I have ever seen! Are you joning shark week? (Since you're so good with sea creatures.)

Congrats on being on the EDM Superblog today.

Had to pop in and say hi! Love this fish, this watercolor just makes me smile. I have been going back through a lot of your older art and am so impressed by your talent. I just borrowed a few books from the library on drawing. Something I would love to do more of, you bring out that inspiration in me. Thank you so much!
