I just finished this guy. He's painted on a nice chunk of wood.
He's bright and cheerful and perhaps his teeth are a bit scary.....but fear not. He's a good fish.
Available right now on ETSY.....just click on his image over to the right of my blog if your interested :) i very much appreciate it!

Illustration Friday's theme is celebrate. I realized browsing through my art folders, lots of my art has celebrating animals or skulls.
This was probably the most recent. I did this little painting for this past December's Nibblefest Contest. The theme was chickens & my chick is definitely celebrating.
I think it's important to celebrate.......even the very small good things that happen every day :)

"Chickadee Felt a Strong Sense of Responsibility"
acrylic on canvas by Patti Backer
I painted this a few years ago and it has always made me think of the passing of time.
Both at -that moment- and over a span of years. Imagine how slow things would get for little chickadee while taking on the task of keeping the egg warm.
Also I think this reflects personal questions in my own brain about the tick tick of my biological clock.
