Illustration Friday - Scales






When I think of scales, I think of snakes.






Or I think of dragons.





Or fish.





I avoid thinking of the scales for weighing, even though my weight now is acceptable. Old patterns of thought die hard.

Now that's a collection of scales! The snakes are great, but since they're the natural enemy of my entry, I've got to go with the bottom fish as my fave.

Torn between the top snake and bottom fish...really nice! Always enjoy your blog...

These paintings are beautiful. I'm a little different than most folks because I like snakes (just not the dangerous sort). I especially like your fish on the bottom.

The ball python is amazing-I love them all, but the ball is my favorite!

The top one is a ball python? I didn't know - I just saw a photo of an unidentified snake, and painted it. Thanks for identifying him for me, debra kay.

I guess the rockfish won the popularity contest, with the ball python close behind.
