.~Fish Parade.~

Original Watercolor
By Traci Suzanne Marvel

Story Behind The Art:

One day many, many, many summers ago, I set up a little table underneath the shade of an Aspen tree. On the table I had watercolor paper, watercolors, brushes, in pens, pitcher of water and some paper towels. Oh and yes, I do think there was a bottle of Duck Pond Pinot Gris involved.

My goal was to unleash my creative spirit by painting whatever was in my head at the moment.
Fish Parade was one of the 5 paintings that occurred serendipitously that afternoon.

I just came across the portfolio that the five paintings were tucked away in and I thought I would bring them out into the light and put them up for sale.

If it were me, I would find a fun funky old frame, paint it a wild crazy color and put this painting in it.


Please let me know if you have any questions and make sure to check out the other 4 paintings in the series:  Traci Suzanne Marvel's Original Paintings       

About Me

My photo

Oh give me just one day to free my mind,to create to listen, to walk, to quiet my soul,to cool down,to carry on~ My photographs and other artworks are inspired by the wonder, simplicity and quietude of every day life. In every photograph,sketch, painting or textile piece, I hope to capture the spirit, the mood, the song of my subjects. I was born and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area. My creative spirit awakened when I moved to Northwest Montana where there was plenty of room to roam with my camera and places to be alone with nature and its inhabitants. All my photographs are professionally printed by acclaimed Bozeman, MT artist/ photographer Rob Outlaw on archival quality fine art paper. My frames are custom built by artist Richard Moore of Wind and Snow Art Gallery in Polson, MT.
