hey! is that inspired by.....


(new wall piece by Gary Rith, about 3 inches wide, 3 inches tall)
You have to tread carefully in this world. You don't copy things. But I have to admit, I have always found that picture below and the fish in the teapot extremely amusing, you know? In my work above the wife is like
"exquisite, the little lid for the teapot!"

Think of it as an homage!

I've considered getting inspiration from Dr. Seuss and now here you've gone and done it. Looks great too.

We love it...but we think the fish color needs to be a little more goldfish/orange-like, to make it more recognizable.

Although...he wrote One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish as well...

so color is negotiable...
