My dad is an avid freshwater fisherman and growing up I remember tons of polaroids of the fish he caught. I decided to make a painting of the polaroid itself rather than the images on it. It was a challenge because it was blurry, faded color and a poor composition. It was also a challenge because initially I tried to create a photorealistic version by girding it off and painting each square of the grid upside-down. That technique became boring and monotonous, so I decided to finish it up the normal way. It was also a challenge because the painting underneath this one was full of texture and even dirt was glued to the canvas.
