The Piscatorial series was originally inspired by the movie Dear Frankie (which deserves your love). Frankie is a young man who enjoys, among other things, drawing pictures of marine life. In the film Frankie's bedroom is decorated with his wonderfully whimsical and detailed sea creature drawings. Have you ever noticed how adult artists put a lot of energy into the attempt to recapture their childlike freedom of visual creation?

These fish were created using collaged paper, wallpaper, acrylic, and ink. Tina's MDF panel was one of many cut from a larger piece that I chose not to keep. I highly recommend reusing materials from unsuccessful works.
