Walking Fish

There are some rare, extremely critically threatened fish that look like they are walking on their hands that live in the Derwent River in Tasmania (I can see the river from my house). There are 14 species of the Tasmanian Handfish. They are tiny and a little grumpy looking but awfully cute at the same time.

I love drawing and painting strutting emus! I have so much fun creating personalities, designing outfits and imaginary scenes. This emu has decided that the fish need some fresh air.

My painting titled “Taking the Fish for a Walk”

This painting is painted on Khadi Mill paper that is made from recycled cotton rags. It is approximately 20 x 20 cm and the original painting is for sale at:
