Art: ISH fish by Artist Heather Brown-Truman
The ~Ish Fish The ~ish Fish started out it’s life as Well-used vintage wooden tray. I thought it needed a fish on it and asked my smallest son what kind of fish he thought I should give it. After careful thinking he said, “I know! A fighting fish!” I said, “You mean a Beta fish?” He said, “yeah Mama that would look really cool”. So, I faithfully got started, just as I was finishing up, painting a fighting fish from memory…he came running back up the studio stairs. His flat feet shaking the house to the basement level. He looks over my shoulder as I was putting the final dot on it and says, “Mama, did you look at the picture first?” I said, “no honey I painted this one from the picture in my head, what’s the matter don’t you like it?” He replies with such sincerity, “oh mom I love it, but it just doesn’t look like the one in my book. That’s OK though don’t feel bad he’s a good fish, he needs some fangs to make him look like a fighter fish though. See ya mom, I gotta go play basketball with my brother before he changes his mind!” And off he ran leaving me feeling a little sheepish, so I went to the bookshelf and pulled out the fish book. Sure enough, he is only Beta-is and not mean looking at all. I still really like him, and I think it would make a great wall hanging in a children’s bathroom or used as a springtime tray out back at the barbeque. Fun and vibrant, lots of fishy attitude. Sturdy built in handles give it balance and a natural frame. Just Plain Fun! This is a layered painting with glazes and undercoating to create depth and intrigue. The colors are all vibrant and rich. It carries a lot of movement; it’s exciting to look at. Painted with the best quality acrylic paints and oils And Sealed with a matt finish polyurethane. (Protection no shine) It is a hand stretched canvas that is gallery wrapped style (Stapled on the back) It is signed titled and dated on the back. AND…as do all of my paintings, It has a special quote on the back of as well Only the new owner will ever know what it is. (Well besides me J) Surprises are the spice of life! It is ready to hang right out of the box, the sides are painted And staple free, so there is no need for a frame.
