Jazz Hands.. . . . . ….. . .. … … . . . . .. .. .

My Grandparents had this charcoal drawing up for years, I never really got it as a kid.

It has since changed hands and ended up in my living room and is due to change hands again. Truth be told i don’t want to see it go but its out of my hands, Which leaves me with a very large void so i decided to do a scale painting of the exact piece, Here’s how its going.. . .. . . .. ..  .

Original piece Charcoal on paper 1988

Fish Died… . . . .. . ….. . . . . . Twice

After jumping from his temporary tank out on to the floor of the shed, Getting covered in the filth below and drowning in the air, I spent three hours nursing him back to health cleaning his whole body and emptying his lungs… . .. . . . .. . . … Three days later it was  kinder to end it… . . .. . . . .
