I thought I had done that by saying to myself at the start 'Fish Only!' No gorgeous fluffy guinea pigs or soft-eyed, lop-eared rabbits, no happy, bouncy puppies, tongues lolling, looking at me beseechingly as I walk on past with my chair and fold-up table and paint brushes, tubes and jar of water. No appealing kittens, no rainbow lorikeets, bright green love-birds, no azure and white budgies looking like a piece of Australian sky come down to earth, and not even the fabulous blue-tongued lizard.
But what a variety of fish there are here! And of course, like everything, the more I look, the more I learn. And the more I learn the more I enjoy. I want to paint them all. What to do?
