It could be because I'm Pisces...

It could be because I'm Pisces but I've got a great interest in coastal art - fish in particular. This morning I was delighted to see a friend in the Bay of Fundy region selected as feature Artist of the Day by Art News Canada.

Choleena DiTullio is Fine Arts grad who uses acrylic as her primary medium. Her recent experimentation with phosphorescent painting has been very well received. Inspired by the natural phenomenon where deep-sea fish use bioluminescent nodes to glow in the dark, her artwork 'charges' in the daylight then creates a whole new painting for the wall on which it is hung after lights-out. Her work is in private collections across Canada, in the U.S. and Australia.

If you are in the Bay of Fundy region you can catch some of Choleena's work at the fabulous Fog Forest Gallery in Sackville, New Brunswick.

I love this artist's view into the undersea, afterhours life of our Bay!
