In 2018 and 2019, two fish paintings received awards in the mixed media category at the Warren Art Festival. Coming in first and second place, each was created with acrylics and adorned with shell fins. These scallop casings were found on Rhode Island beaches, though their scarcity meant only a few more renderings were able to be produced.
Hopefully, the shores will reveal more of these beautiful exteriors in its collection in the future. To see more examples of fish paintings, please visit @amanda_marie_artist on Instagram.
