I had been wanting to revisit this fish for a while now. The mood struck me that this particular teapot was right so Bling was reborn. The fish that she's based on is the Rusty Parrot fish and ironically the markings are for the male not the female. I guess that makes her androgynous. Yes, she has rhinestones on her fins and at the corners of her eyes! Bling is currently on display as part of a group show for the month of February at the the Carrollwood Cultural Center, Tampa, Florida. The Meet the Artists reception is Friday, February 13th. If you're in the area, stop on by. We're planning a smashing reception that's sure to be a great start to your Valentine's Day weekend.
