School: Homer High School
I’ve lived in Alaska for my whole life, and fishing is a big part of our culture here in Alaska, so I decided to paint a fish in a net. For this mixed media assignment, I had a lot of various materials available to use. I experimented with using different acrylic mediums and gels to thicken the paint. I then cut slits in my canvas and threaded a fishing net through the painting, so that it looks like the fish is caught in the net.
