i have begun what will be my largest watercolor to date -- 16x20". i can see it is going to take quite a while! i am going to stick with this color scheme. you can see some coelacanths on the left. (coelacanths are primitive bony fish which were thought to have been extinct for tens of thousands of years until one was caught off the coast of south africa in 1938. they are sometimes called "living fossils". the name is pronounced see-luh-canth.

(i was studying to be a paleontologist before i was waylaid by a career in arts administration!)

there are more photos on flickr. click this photo to go to my photostream.
