I remember fishing with my family as a young child. ย When we went in my dad’s boat on the lake, we would sit for hours (or so it seemed) without the fish taking a bite… talk about BORING!! ย ๐Ÿ™„

When I was a teenager, we started creek fishing which was much more EXCITING! ย ๐Ÿ˜ƒ ย We could actually SEE the fish swimming in the creek water. ย And we caught fish! ย Hooray!! ย I recall how wonderful they tasted knowing I caught them! ๐Ÿ‘

Two of my sweet friends from Germany and I are going on our own CREATIVE, fishing expedition starting September 1st and you are welcome to join us if you’d like! ย ๐Ÿก

My goal is to create 50 mixed media fish and post mainly on Instagram. ย However, a fish or two may swim onto a blog post! ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

I started experimenting with materials and here is a fish appetizer for you:


I will show you my fish finding tools on Friday. ย I hope you join me!

Cheers! ย ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I agree, creek and river fishing is far more exciting. So 50 paintings, 50 fish in the month of September? sounds like fun!
