Lucky Fish


This weeks EDM challenge is to draw a fish. One of the few things that is not yet packed is this little hinged metal fish sitting on my art table. Charles gave him to me when I was jabbering about Feng Shui and the fact that Fish symbolize abundance, prosperity, wealth. Also, Carp swim upstream and are known for their strength. I know there's more to it in the Chinese culture, but that's how I see it. I focused on abundance and strength while painting the little guy, so I expect plenty of both in the days to come--and hope you have enough, too!

Of course, I wouldn't object if I found a fish like the one you drew and some gold coins fell out of his mouth. Think I'll go fishing!
