Yes, this really IS great fun, Pauline. It reminds a bit of Tom & Jerry, with the cat about to get a plank across its comedic farce.

Again, I like the style. The castle isn't anchored to the bottom of the fish tank btw, it's kind of floating half way up like a magical Disney castle.
Great details throughout, though, especially the musical manuscript in the background. I think that's what it is, anyway.

I thought the lone fish was a nimble touch, with the others sensibly hiding at the bottom out of harm's way. It's brilliant how naughty George
is focussing all of his energy on the straggler. Interestingly, the suggested weight of the tank/bowl is just enough to hold George's bulk as he tries
to figure out his angle of attack.

Once again the colours are working very well, to the point that they match the theme perfectly. Very pleasing on the eye.

Could the bottom right of the tank stand a nudge? It looks as if it should turn a bit sooner to help with the roundness. Minor point and I'm not sure that it matters.

Very nice and highly entertaining painting that will definitely, beyond doubt, catch the attention of family and friends when they come to visit.

Best

I love this. The crisp colors reflect life. Well done, Pauline. And I love the title.

Didn't realise that until you pointed it out. Kinda obvious now :wink:

It could JJ. Again, I didn't spot this until you pointed this out. :roll:

It is too big to be hung in my home JJ :)
It's now stashed outta the way in my studio.
Thank you so much for taking the time to offer your more than helpful reactions to my painting.
I'm chuffed to bits that you took the time to respond. :D

Hey Suzie.
Lovely to hear from you. :D
Buzzing you like this.
:D :D :D
I hope you are still painting, and dancing. :)
