"Fish Tales" the start of a series of watercolour paintings

The “Fish Tales” painting series depicts life in both the Canadian maritime  Mexican regions.  Portrayed are everyday people going about their daily routine. The paintings are watercolours and incorporate newspaper clippings.  The figures in the paintings are painted on newspaper clippings that were taken from the editorial/opinions sections of current local newspapers.

Each figure has their own personal opinion and each has a story to tell.  The articles are of the time that the study photographs for the paintings were taken thereby reflecting what was on the minds of the people at that time.

Each person is a vignette of that time and an integral part of the complete picture of what goes on around them giving us a glimpse of that moment of time.
