Fishy in a Grotto ACEO

Like yesterday's fishes, this one seems to be happily swimming in an underwater grotto.

The fish is made from my favorite origami paper; I like how the flowers ended up on her tailfin.


The background is painted with watercolors on a piece of handmade paper. The paper has wonderful organic bit and threads running through, which absorbed or repelled the paint in ways I couldn't have planned. It all came out really well, and I'm happy with my little fishy.


This little fishy is available in my Etsy shop:

And stay tuned. More fishes swimming this way...

Thanks, Leah. I wonder if my fishy fascination has anything to do with me being a Pisces? - K
