The lazy days of August - perfect for fishing! I hooked this piece 2 years ago and thought why not share it and offer it in my Etsy shop rather than keeping it hidden away in a box. This was one of my first pieces experimenting with other materials such as ribbons and bright yarns on the tail fin, rather than just wool.
I have never fished or have a love of fishing but for some reason I love to hook fish. I've probably hooked at least a half dozen of them, hooking both primitive and bright colored fish. They are a fun subject matter. I decided to add air bubbles to this rather than hooking a wave effect which I tend to do with my fish.
This fish looks happy to me, like he is just enjoying his swim. I'm beginning to feel that way too - interview #3 is scheduled for Friday. I know it is a good, positive sign!
