These little birds are quite entertaining to watch.  Well, they all seem to move in unison right.  Well, this group kinda had a lone ranger sort of always going in a different direction than all the rest.  It reminded me of myself...  :D

Even though I eat fish... when I paint them I just have this empathy towards the fact that I paint them after being caught or like this with some fishermen nearby.

Oh how I love this painting.... originally titled Giant Jimmy... I changed it.  See, I loved this so I kept it at my house for like a two years... and my roommate at the time pointed out that you could see a couple of other things in it.  The bunny from the movie "Donnie Darco" and spike the little head Gremlin.  I totally saw it too... made me happy and so I loved the painting even more.  But... I told myself I wouldn't keep anymore of my paintings until I own a home.  So, it is available for you to hang on your wall!

This painting came about after a sad but fun occasion.  Last spring a bunch of starfish washed on shore... well I have a friend that likes going "mermaiding" she calls it :D, all the time.  She goes to the beach and collects all kinds of goodies.  Well, we checked to make sure all the starfish were not living and then gathered a couple of hundred of them.  Back at her house she late out a bunch of them to dry out on this turquoise piece of wood.  I thought it was beautiful and so I had to paint it.  Then I named the painting after her. :D
