Anglerfish with lure

Tuesday’s New York Times Science section featured some wonderful sea creatures which make their own light–bioluminescence. This caught my attention as I’m always looking for things to paint. My first attempt is this grumpy looking anglerfish with lure. I used a lot of silver and if you look at the original it’s pretty sparkly. You can’t really see it in a photo. That’s why Kerfe and I should have a show one of these days, right, (K)?

    Right.(or as I reflexively say, “Right-o” in some bad impersonation of a old British man who had been a colonel or something in WWII. I don’t know why, maybe too many British comedies on PBS when I was growing up.)

    BEAUTIFUL! Love how the black background offsets the gorgeous combination of color. But….this little guy got a hook in its mouth?! OH NO! Too pretty to injure. Maybe….add a bandaid? 😀
