My work is usually about stories featuring anthropomorphized animals (or inanimates) and sometimes my inspiration simply comes from the wish to paint a certain fauna member. I prefer cats, closely followed by dogs, birds, and insects. And some species play a very small role in my work. Like fish, for example. But that changed when a new idea for a painting popped before my minds eye. And not just one fish, I imagined a whole posse! I'm still working on it but wanted to share this Pike and Barbel detail.
