“My Bird” 1989 acrylic painting by Stephanie Ann Johanson · return to choices | next

 

My Bird 1989 sm

 

 The idea with “My Bird” was to reverse the idea of owning a pet fish,

and so the mermaid owns a pet bird in an air filled upside-down fish bowl.

The original of this painting sold at a Banff science fiction convention in 1989.

I don’t remember the original size, something close to 20” x 26”

I had a hard time parting from this painting…
