Fish Heads

Here is the only of my new paintings that I have a decent picture of. I went fishing with my dad and watched him clean the fish. I must say I am so empathetic for creatures of all kinds that it made me really sad. ( I even feel sorry for the little bait minnows) I snapped a picture with my phone of the dismembered heads in the bucket and captured a really neat composition. My goal was to take a gruesome subject and make it look beautiful and even decorative. The painting is 24x35 inches, Acrylic on Panel.

Very cool. It captures it pretty well, I think. Probably even more so in person.
