"Pacific Cod" deja vu

Oil on archival, museum quality, 1/8” Ampersand Gessobord™ panel – 6” x 6”

I know what my regular blog readers are thinking; WTF, I’ve seen this painting before. Well yes, you have, but I did this painting before hooking up with http://www.dailypainters.com/ and this is the only way I can get it into my gallery and still have people comment on it without having them search for it. OK, I didn’t get into the studio today, but then you knew that. C'est la vie.

Glad you posted this - I'm relatively new to your blog, so I haven't seen it before, and all I have to say is: Fish lips!!!!:)

Thanks, SM
The nice thing about this blog business is that one is continually discovering new creative people to bounce things off of. Since painting eats up most of my time, I seldom have time to go exploring creative cyberspace on my own, unless prompted by a comment. As I have said so often, comments are what keep me posting (OK, selling my work is nice, too) I did take the time to visit your site...very nice! I like the way you handled the cherries and the “gold and...” series is great. “Candlestick and Plum” has a Cezanne feel to it.

I see you went to MICA; Do you miss Baltimore? (Or at least the Mount Royal Tavern?)

This is brilliant. I adore it.

Coming from you Jelaine, that means a lot. Thanks!

Mark,

I love the way you paint fish. The cod are so shiney milky. The salmon is dabom.

Mark Adams said...

Thanks, Rick. What is it about slimy subjects? Oysters, fish, compost...it's all good. I guess I’m from the Flemish school of painting (or is that phlegmish?)

Wow. This is scary and beautiful. I can really feel the fish coming up out of the ice. Nice perspective. I really like the rich color variations in the fish heads. :)
BTW- I just realized like a dummy I didn't have you in my listing great daily painters. so just added you. :)

Mark Adams said...

Thanks Jeff!

Duh, You are not on my list either and you are the only artist on the daily painters site whose work I have bought! I will fix that tonight. I never think about that list. There are so many great artists on the daily painters site, I only add people to the list if they ask to exchange links.
