If Wishes Were Fishes...

My WISHES Challenge at Inspiration Avenue is currently running and this is my artwork for the challenge. I thought I'd do something fun and simple. I think this is coming from my unconscious that's been thinking about trying to create a children's coloring book. I think it would be fun to try to produce simple enough art that one can color it. We'll see, maybe I'll do some sketching this summer.

This saying is a shortened version of "If Wishes Were Fishes, We'd All Cast Our Nets!" Here's my piece...
If you'd like to purchase this little fishy he'll be available in my Etsy Shop.
Since we're talking WISHES, here's my top 5:
  1. Good health
  2. Continued weight loss
  3. Marry the man of my dreams (I guess I gotta meet him first!)
  4. Sell my artwork successfully
  5. MORE art supplies!!
  6. Winning 5 million dollars in the lottery (or inheriting it from a long lost relative, I'm not picky!)

  1. my wish for you is that all your wishes come true!

  2. A colouring book is a great idea Jenn, you should definitely do that!

    I can see your adorable little fish as a black and white drawing, his lovely tail and scales would be great fun to colour - I'd quite like to have a go myself!

  3. You created a great wish-fish. I thought it was a fun challenge too.


  4. I love your cute fish and truly wish that all your wishes come true ;O

  5. When I first read the challenge this week, I went looking for the saying. I found it and the about horses, too. Of course, I went with a different quote because I can't draw a fish OR a horse, but I love how you treated this challenge.

  6. If wishes were fishes, .... I love that! and your submission! May all your wishes come true, and when they do... please share your art supplies with your girlfriends at IA!!!!


  7. Well Jenn, I'm sure the man of your dreams is out there looking for the woman of his dreams. You just have to find each other. Sounds simple doesn't it? I'm so glad you're not picky about the manner in which the 5 million dollars comes your way. It's so important to be flexible.


Please leave me a comment, I've sure missed hearing from you!
