I’m a huge fan of tourism souvenirs and what’s not love about any vintage kitsch representing the state of Florida?
Some of the fish sculptures at the house. This set has the most amazing detail and is accompanied by two little fish children.
I love the fact that these 2 little fish are so different from the bigger ones above with the same amazing detail. I especially love the criss-cross design on the one fish.
I love the Florida pitcher and saucer, especially as it’s cut in half so it lays flat against the wall.
The two sets of fish aren’t actually parents and children though it’s easy to mistake them as this because of how they’re grouped. The first set are fairly flat. The ones in the bottom photo are actually really fat and stick out from the wall a good 4 inches. I like those bottom ones best. Other than the fact that they’re black, my least favorite ceramic color unless it’s used as a background for other colors that pop out over. But they’re so pudgy and cute I can get over my ceramic color prejudice for them.
I wish I had more to post from “The House of Prudence”. My latest painting was inspired by Snappy P’s fish collection.
Post the painting @ AWMOK.
Great post Denny, I’ve loved all the fish…
