Closeup of Shelli (Codfish Project) as of May 3, 2018


I have been traveling so have been away from this project for  several days, but returned to it this morning.  I am one of about 50 area artists who are decorating wooden codfish cutouts to be displayed and then auctioned as a fundraiser for Marblehead Festival of Art.  This year, I am decorating my codfish with a painted pattern of seashells (taking the place of scales).  I call my fish "Shelli".  Today I kept going with my second round of painting the shells.  I am using white acrylic paint and a fineline marker with metallic gold ink.  It is slow and tedious, but I did two more rows today.  To be continued. . . .
