Fish - Sunday Postcard Art


Fish is this week's theme at Sunday Postcard Art which sent me in search for the perfect fish. I was a little astounded to find that there isn't anything too fishy in my collection of treasures, apart from this gorgeous French fish hook, there wasn't much else to work with. A local store owner I know had a recent trip to France and returned home with some lovely bits & pieces and the fish hook was one of them!

I had to avoid hooking myself as I worked on this piece today. It reminded me of the first time I ever went fishing. I was on a school camp out at Camp Quaranup, we hiked down to the jetty, I had a hand line and hooks, I bravely squished the bait onto the hook and sat there for hours (minutes?) - caught nothing! What I mostly remember though, is the trek back up the hill and having to pull the hook out of my arm a couple of times, not realising that if the barb had got in far enough it was going to be much harder to get out - nobody mentioned that 'til much later!

The only stamp image (apart from postage variety) to be seen here is a small section of 'Thistle' by Paperbag Studios.

I hope you're having a lovely Sunday.
