I had a little Cornish ceramic bowl with this design; now I know what the fish were! Nicely textured painting- everytime I see the title I think "and a partridge in a pear tree."I like your hounds, too.
These are great! They look so real, even I know it's just a painting the fish look as if they are alive and just have been trapped on your canvas. I think it's because of their eyes.
