Above:  Pisces Girl, Toni Youngblood, 2013, 12"x16", Watercolor on cold press Arches watercolor paper. Click on the image for the full view. 
I'm submitting this painting  for the Utah Watercolor Society Two-Star & Signature Membership Exhibition which will run from March 14th until April 12th.   It's a self-portrait titled:  Pisces Girl.

Attributes of Pisces include two fish swimming in opposite directions.  Neptune is the planetary ruler of  Pisces.  Neptune is typically depicted carrying a trident and often wearing a crown - god/king of the Sea that he is.  In the painting above, in the place where a crown would normally be worn, there are stars at the point  "my" head and the two opposing fish are all colliding.  Pisces people, according to the astrologers, are able to see all sides in a situation (opposing directions of the swimming fish), are highly compassionate, get along well with most people and are creative and artistically inclined.  Some say Pisces are indecisive, but I'm not sure about that.  It's pretty apparent that the two "fish" are a bit lean in this picture, indicating the "starving" artist.  One can't take one's self   TOO  seriously!

Perhaps you would like  an astrological portrait painted of yourself or as a gift for someone who enjoys astrology, and doesn't take themselves too seriously.  Just send me a message by clicking the "Contact Us" button and we will get all the planets in alignment for that!
