Not only are fish tasty but they are fascinating, and this morning, while surfing the net, this little beauty caught my eye. Call me a shark, but in order to post this with any satisfaction, I had to perform some digital trickery. On the right is the original, but the composition was stagnant, even for a study.

But as they say–whoever they are– “A bad day of fishing is still better than a good day at the office!”

So grab a cold beer, chips, tartar sauce and enjoy!

Seumas McNally (1979 to 2000)

I knew Seumas as a sweet, giggly and brilliant child. He grew into his good nature and genius until, tragically, cancer stole him from us just after his 21st birthday, in 2000.

We all miss you, Seumas.

You can read my sister Wendy’s eulogy of her son here.

This painting is meant to be viewed while listening to Arvo Part’s Spiegel im Spiegel. Below is a short version of the song on YouTube, but a superior and complete version can be found on Q2 Music (@q2music) by clicking here and scrubbing to 1:45:45. 

Spiegel im Spiegel, the painting, has been accepted into the juried “Family” show at Artel Gallery, and is on view from March 5 to April 12.
