DescriptionAcrylic on canvas. I have been ignoring my pair of betta fish for a while. It's about time I did a painting of them. Sometimes I feel like my betta fish. While cooped up at home recovering from my cervical spinal cord injury, just like my fishies in their tiny tank, I watch the world go by and I feel the need to catch up. I feel so helpless I just want to yell out 'wait up'. Not to worry, I'm coming back soon with a roar !

OY Tai, Canada Member Since December 2010 Artist Statement The two sides of me...
My sumi paintings are essentially monochromatic. I find boundless freedom in expressing myself through different shades of black, white and grey. I love to use minimal strokes capturing the essence while leaving enough white space for the viewer's imagination.
With acrylic, watercolor and oil, I feel like a 4 year old child rolling on the floor coating myself with all the different colors I love. Unlike my Chinese ink paintings, I fill the canvas with so much color that it might be suffocating for you but I am having so much fun I just want to share it with you too.
