Maroon Lightning Clownfish
Last time I wrote about the Fill-A-Frame event hosted by my local frame shop. I picked out a frame and had to make a drawing to fit it. Choosing a subject for this maroon and black frame was hard, but I came upon the maroon lightning clownfish. I figured the fish was appropriate not only for its color, but also for its size - the drawing is 5.8" x 5" (colored pencil). They will have an exhibit of all the Fill-A-Frame artwork starting around the end of this month (slight date change from what I was expecting).
Edit (06/01/11): I should have shared the source of the inspiration for this painting in this post. The Lightning Project is a breeding program for the lightning maroon clownfish. The blog has some beautiful photos as well as a ton of information about raising these unique fish. Many thanks to Matt Pedersen for posting my drawing on the blog!
