A Fish Out Of Water

A Fish Out Of Water

If one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with success unexpected in common hours.
Henry David Thoreau

I don't know whether to roll about laughing or gasp at the creativity and expertise in this most scrumptious painting. I love it! What a debonair fishy!! What attitude!! What style!! Topped off with the wonderful Thoreau quote (that man had to be a genius) it is perfection. Drum roll. Standing ovation from me.
