Clown Fish and Literary Tree II

I absolutely loved snorkeling!  Swimming with colorful fish in beautiful blue, warm water was amazing.  The fish were inspiring, as were paintings on a restaurant (The Fish Hopper) wall, in Kona, by Artist Shelly Maudsley White .  I'd never really considered painting fish, but my trip to Hawaii inspired just that, and here is my first fish.  A tiger clown fish, painted on wood.  

 
I, also, have a painting, "Literary Tree II" that I am sharing today.  I finished it a few weeks ago.  I used lots of torn paper, from that old French Novel that I've been using, and matte medium, to form the tree. Both paintings will be in my Etsy Shop later today.
