Measures 35" x 20", acrylic, stones, wire, glitter on Cd's. I keep this mobile in a corner of my studio...it was one of those "I'd like to create a mobile before I die" projects. I saw the instructions in a craft book so I set about making an aquarium themed mobile. I collaged exotic fish eyes I found in an old National Geographic magazine and then with paint, making the discs feel like eyes, fish, water in movement. I added stones and glitter for the underwater mystery and I can tell you it was total playtime. I never know what to say or think at aquarium windows...watching the fish swim by...large schools, big lone ones...I always try to connect eye to eye...? click to enlarge.
The heatwave finally broke...Pablo took the portable fan out to the shed, the thick fog has rolled in....what a contrast! The pool is still heated to 84 but I don't have the courage to put on my bathing suit and wade in and keep myself under the water!
Life is pretty simple here at the beach....we have a new "Whole Foods" store and Pablo and I spent the evening walking the aisles and even had dinner at the deli....a Farmers Market Sandwich: Mozzarella cheese, basil, spring mix, chicken on sour dough sliced bread with the addition of balsamic vinegar....we added Tabbouleh for a salad...WOW! Life is good!
