Hercules the Goldfish
oil on panel
Every time I sit on my couch this is my view. I have wanted to paint it so many times. Well, I finally have. This little fella is the friendliest fish we have ever had. He really has happy a personality. Whenever you approach he comes to greet you. He swims round and round, I swear when Sunday football is on tv he seems especially active! I know this all sounds crazy, but Hercules was a prize at a local street fair and when my daughter brought him home I groaned. But this little goldfish lived with us for almost 4 years!
My son came home with a new goldfish the very same way. I was kind of excited...but Nigel is very different. Very skittish, hides all day and doesn't swim around much...
