Kolene Spicher Mermaid Winter Scene - Part 2

It was a real Fish Fly! 
This was my progress after a few days of on and off working 

This is my Part 2 blog entry about the painting called "Fish Fly".  You can read about Part 1 by going to this link:

I  like to start with the background.  I do so because I find that it's much easier painting over the background than it is painting around the foreground.  I haven't decided 100-percent if the sky will remain the same but for now it's fine.  


She's flying! 
This is FISH FLY  in progress!  I took a quick picture here to show what it looked like after another day of painting.  I am sort of working this around some of my other responsibilities so it's slow going! 


Here I show some of the other characters in place.  I love the little fisherman on the left.  I am going to have some fish flipping and flopping near by.  

The frame is OUTSTANDING and in very good condition.  It is a Mid-1800s Lemon Gold Antique guilder frame.  

Check back later this week, I will have more activity.  Each step builds on another.  With each wash of color, more and more interest will develop.  

Happy Thanksgiving!  

Enjoy!
