Quiet Times by AniaMohrbacher Quiet Times by AniaMohrbacher
"It was peaceful times like this, that Frankie treasured the most; uncluttered cool room, a book to read, fish genie that always gave good advice (and weather predictions), and a scent of cherries in the air. Life coulnd't be better!"

This guy is always meandering between the stories in my mind, yet there isn't much of finished art of him. I'm trying to make up for it :)

Medium: Transparent Watercolor on 9x12 coldpress paper. And as per usual.. looks MUCH better in person. Perhaps I should switch to digital after all...

I've been painting since I can remember :D This particular piece though probably took between 6- and 10 hours, I can't remember anymore since it's been a while ago. I'm glad that you like it!

He looks like a delightfully twisted little fellow. After seeing this picture, I'd like to meet him.

No, please, please don't switch to digital. D: Your real media work is so beautiful, and it's such a rare and wonderful thing to see on deviantart. It's tough seeing how the computer mangles your real media work, but being able to hold the genuine thing in your hands is so worth it. And, in my experience, you learn so much more doing real media. Digital stymies creativity and the art education process.

Please, keep rockin' the traditional!

Hmmm... how could I have missed this when you posted it?.. oh well.. I think your Frankie would be a wonderful storybook character! You should write a little children's book! I love this, it is beautiful!

Man, I wish I had a genie fish! Really lovely -- so imaginative and vibrant. Definitely a fave. :)

Ah yes, genie fishes are easier to take care of than the regular ones. You just leave them in the vase and summon them when you need to find out whether you should wear shorts or a raincoat!

I'm glad that you like the picture :)

It means "normal" fish -- in this case the kind who swim in water. :D

Beatiful art (and sorry I didn:t post back sooner) While it wouldn't be horrible to switch to digital, there's something special about the beauty of watercolor so I would't give it up.
