This is a small painting of two Oscar fish swimming in the tumultuous Amazon. The mature fish is darker in color with spots on its belly. The juvenile fish is lighter in color and swims just in front of it’s elder, not knowing the danger presence of one of it’s own kind can portent. The dark background serves to highlight the ethereal glow of their bodies, capturing a moment frozen in time where nature’s raw beauty is laid bare. The visible brush strokes throughout the painting give the water a roiling quality to match the inherent danger.
