so is the acrylic ink the white detailing? Or is that gouache {sp?}
You are so inspiring.

It looks wonderful but mostly I'm impressed by the subject: haven't seen many relationships pictured between birds and fishes before, if any. Beautiful!

Really lovely. I'm wondering, do you stretch your wc paper? How do you keep it from buckling, esp with adding collage?

Aloha from Hawaii! I am a long time follower of your blog and admirer of your art! I wanted you to know that I have included a few of your images on my "pinterest!" boards. They are located here if you care to take a look.
Also, I have been asking a few artists I admire to share their process for creating prints of original works. Would you mind telling me how you do yours? Do you send it to a local printer or do you print them at home on your own? Do you have a specific printer you use? I am exploring options for printing some of my art work and appreciate any input you may have.
Blessings to you!
Mahalo nui loa!

Que maravillosas imagenes nos regalas! me recordaron aquella historia donde un pez y un ave se enamoran y encuentran que su amor es imposible, porque después de todo donde irian a vivir, el ave no puede dentro del agua y el pez no puede fuera de ella.
Te felicito !

So beautiful. I love the relationship between the bird and the fish, their curiousity is as lovely as their separate worlds.

Now this reminds me of a French song by Juliette Gréco!
It talks about a fish and a bird fondly in love but how could they really meet?
There's a link to the song:

Soooo glad that everything's fixed with your wonderful blog.

I must have this print if you put it in your shop. I have three beautiful biracial children, but some of the elder relatives in my family were not as accepting as I would have hoped when I married out of my race. My grandmother once said to me..."A fish and a bird can fall in love, but where will they build their nest." I would like to think we have built a very strong nest.

The fish and the bird
who fall in love
will find no place to build a home in,
The fish and the bird who fall in love
are bound forever to go roaming...
