seven fish for luck orginal hand pulled print
Six goldfish hiding under the water. One dances in the waves. Seven fish will bring luck, or so the Chinese say.
Inspiration: There's always one special fish that swims higher than the others, that wants to jump out of its own confines to just capture a glimpse of the unknown realms that lie beyond, even just for a moment. Those people inspire us to push the envelope too, to go beyond our own comfort zone and thus grow and develop as a person. Though I do speak from experience when I say fish living in a small bowl or tank should stay put for their own personal well being.
Process: I drew the water pattern in pen and ink, and then transferred it to a silkscreen and reversed the image in a long drawn out process. Then I made another screen with the fish in and printed the image in two colours.
Makes a lovely house warming gift, or anyone needing a bit of good luck (marriage, pregnancy... going away to university). Pretty much everyone - and that includes you (for you must always be your own good friend). Frame it for a wall; post it to a friend; pop it in a scrapbook. Don't forget to see my other little waterscape prints, like lotus or sea serpents.
Size: A5 acid free, smooth, heavy weight cartridge paper (that's 148 x 210 mm or 5.8 x 8.3 inches). Fits standard sized frames (either A5 or 8x6inch apertures are fine. frames are not included in the sale.)
Materials: I use water based (eco friendly) acrylic inks in pastel pinks and blues to give peaceful meditation like feel to this artprint. All materials are archival to last as an heirloom into the future.
Important stuff: My screenprints are hand printed and hand registered by eye and unlike computer generated images are subject to slight variations that make each a unique piece of art.
