Aquarium #2

This quilt began with a small sketch I made in 1989, shortly after returning from Australia and the Great Barrier Reef for the first time. I’ve kept the sketch for many years, and almost every time I’ve returned from a snorkeling trip I have made a new interpretation. The shape of the fish bodies and tails are a fantasy amalgam of many different species. The colors and patterns were inspired by parrot fish and other brilliantly colored tropical fish.
