"20 Fishes" Mini Paintings

As a weekend project, I decided to draw as many cocktail-drinking fish as I could on tiny novelty canvases. I ended up making twenty (the canvases come in packs of five) and then I turned the set into an 11x17” print. It was the beginning of a series of mini-painting exercises. I've found that working small allows me to loosen up with paint, and not worry that I'll ruin a precious surface.
