I made this Sushi themed mixed media assemblage with the thought in mind: “If it happened once, it could happen again.” This is the third sushi piece I have made but the other two sold within weeks of being on the walls of Sunrose Gallery here in Seaside, Oregon. Maybe it will happen again!
I knew I wanted to make a splashy little fish so I cut out a simple pattern and proceeded to have fun using mismatched papers. Making the fish is an awful lot of fun!
I have a book of vintage faces and one of the ladies donated her eye…which was slightly creepy in my book, but I love the sassiness of the eye on my fish! There was literally no plan, it was all play!
I am ashamed to admit I have never gotten proficient eatting with chop sticks, I would take more food home in the doggy bag if I did! But I always take the chopstick set in the white paper sitting at my place just for a piece like this.
I think little details like adding a border of glitter glue (Ranger Stickles) around the Scrabble pieces makes a big difference in the finished piece.
After years of making mixed media pieces, adding swirls of glitter glue have become my signature.
I bet this will be on it’s way to Sunrose Gallery as soon as owner Cathy sees it!
