Day Fourteen - 30 in 30 Challenge

Folks in Florida like to fish and some come to  visit for that reason only.  With  the Atlantic on one side and the Gulf of Mexico on the other,  we  have hundreds of miles of beaches.  In between there are numerous lakes and rivers.

Florida offers salt flat fishing, backwater fishing, back yard fishing,  deep sea fishing and even limited fresh water fishing.   The natives will tell you, " if you toss a line into the water something will bite!"  (Not always my experience I assure you!)...

No way could I have a Florida theme and not paint a fish!  Well, I didn't paint just any common fish, I painted the rarest of all - The Rosemary Fish!  Oh my goodness!  he wanted to belong to the redfish family but they rejected him!  First attempt ever at gills and scales...definitely need more than one day.  


  1. Ha, Rosemary. If you didn’t tell me it was a rare fish, I wouldn’t know. Looks so beautiful and rich to me! Nice work.

  2. Thank you, Jo! This one was a fighter - we struggled most of the afternoon! I appreciate your looking and your comment!
