About the Artist

Annette Hassell
Member Since December 2014

Projects: By day, I' m a scenic artist-which means that I paint sets for t.v.shows, and backdrops for plays, and other things that other people have designed. It' s nice to make a living painting anything, admittedly, but whenever I can, I do my own artwork, from my own ideas. I paint still lifes ( well...kinda), and portraits (of creatures animal and human) and I love to paint illustrations of my own stories, which so far, exist only in my mind.

Location: Los Angeles, CA USA

For this little painting I was thinking about the creative process that we, as artists, go through in our minds as we try and determine what it is that we are going to paint (this time). For me, it usually starts with just thinking about something completely unrelated to painting…like fish… I like goldfish… wait…goldfish trapped in a bowl? That seems unkind…. how about those fish in “Fantasia”?I loved them…they were magical…I bet you couldn’t keep them in any bowl…and so on. Sometimes these musings lead down rather unpleasant avenues-dark corners that need to be brought to light-and then other times, the musings are much simpler, and result in images of magical, flying fancy fish, but they always lead somewhere.
