amongst the coral



Remember how I've been looking to all things aquatic? At last I have something to show you. I'm constantly finding new ways to use gold, & in this one I decided to paint the coral with gold to emphasize a precious quality about them. Some of the fish are quite shy & some are simply curious, but all of them are based on real species.
