Beautiful Di. Hopefully you have a client for that work of art. A well heeled client.

Loved getting a small peek at the inside of your house. An artist house is always fun and interesting to see. Hint, hint, nudge, nudge.

WOW! I used to have a 55 gallon fish tank...these fish would fit right in! Very life-like.

Nice work; very detailed!

HawaiiDi -
That is just exquisite! Love how fluid the octopus is - and the flow of grain on the fish is perfect! (All of it is just amazing!)
The detail on the coral - wow.
Thanks so much for sharing the pics!
