Believe-it-or-not, this is this fish’s name:  unless you want to use its scientific moniker:  Selene Vomer!  I’ve never seen these guys when diving, and took my reference shots through windows of an aquarium in Vegas.

These great giant monsters make you feel very small – and ultimately peaceful – untill you notice their overbite!  I painted the watercolour paper with gesso to begin this painting and hence have areas that do not accpet the watercolour but add lovely texture, the feel of the coral.

My painting of St. Mary’s Church in King Township near Nobleton, Ontario, is one of a series of local historic sites.  Built in 1855, the church served the numerous Irish émigrés who settled in the area following the potato famine of 1847, some of whom are buried in the adjacent cemetery.  A number of residents of King have responded to this painting with pleasure as it brings back memories of their family history.
