Covid Creativity: 17Aug2021

 By Susan Irving

I painted this as a memorial gift for my daughter.  Her 15+ year old goldfish, Raven — who was jet black and tiny when we got him, passed away last spring with a number of his offspring from some sort of fish virus. 

Raven, at 15, was over a foot long and bright orange. Only four of his numerous offspring survived. The goldfish are indoor fish during the winter and live in a large tub in Sonja’s basement.  In the summer they go out to their “cottage”, a large pond with waterlilies and other water plants.
