Swimming Upstream

The challenge this week set by The Three Muses is surreal.

No really that's it, Surreal !

Here is my attempt & I'm really looking forward to seeing what everyone else makes of this theme.


Here is my digital art journal page, showing the images used & their source.

  2. There is something fishy going on here and I am determined to get to the bottom of it, even if I have to climb down everyone of those steps!! Daisy, this is a delightful touch of the surreal. I am a sucker for stairs of any type and yours are beautiful. The colour are gorgeous and the fishies add just that right touch. I love your scrumptious artwork.

  14. That's brilliant Daisy! Actually it reminds me of something I saw in USA a few years ago - when one of their major damns was built it was discovered that the river there was the main route of salmon when they swim upstream to spawn. So they built a special series of steps for the salmon, and visitors can actually watch them from outside or go inside and see it from under the water. It was fascinating to watch.
