Robert...I luv this one even more than the last one...& it would look awesome at my pond...here's a pic...just put him anywhere around these Elephant Ears with my little fisherboy! LOL!

Nah, really, you do wonderful work! Must show this to DH...cause I'm always collecting junk for barnwood blooms on old barnwood. Love the fins on this one & the "mean mouth!" The swirly pc certainly looks like underwater vegetation! Just love it! TFS! Jeanne s.

Robert, you just never cease to amaze me! How anyone has such creative vision, and the expertise to make them a reality, boggles my mind. I've long been a fan of your many creations as you know, and generally tend to gush over them. But I can't help it. LOL.

hugs, Karen

This is my favorite, as well. I have seen gardens that mimic the bottom of the sea, with succulents and plants that resemble underwater flora and this would be a great addition. Beautifully done.

Love it! Perfect piece for a garden even if you don't have a pond, could put it by a "sea" of blue flowers! Jan

Luna, you page needs to be revised. That is if my memory serves me correctly - about the boyfriend I mean.

Anyway the eye: i purchased a dozen plastic magnifying lenses on ebay because they were cheap. One is covering a yellow half marble.
The seaweed piece was one of two heat (flame) deflector from inside a water heater. Please don't ask. ha ha ha

I fixed the link to the widow.

Your fish is awesome, he looks huge, is that a garage door behind him? All your work is beautiful and very creative. Man, I wish that I could weld. You do a swell job on the painting part also. Great work.

Great job...and what an imagination! You used some interesting pieces to put him all together. Both fish are to crave for but this one is my pick!

I love this fish too. Great color. I like that the seaweed is decorative but also holding the fish up. Really good looking seaweed, btw. I like the way you have him positioned kind of pointing down, it really adds life to him. Your choice of junk for body parts has been just perfect, it really makes them interesting. I keep comming back to look. These are great.
