This is The Big Fish (a blue faced cichlid we named 'fat boy') that hangs in our long narrow hallway. The painting is oil with mixed media on linen, painted in 1995. We had a 35 gallon fish tank. This Big Boy ate every other fish in the tank, including several crayfish, then grew to an amazing size. sometimes i think to sell this, several people have 'tried it out' on their wall, for a few years it was displayed at The Bookstore on Main Street in Gloucester. Now, I say hello to Fat Boy everytime i hang a coat, store a painting, or head to the downstairs laundry.
