One of my nieces decided to get married this month on a day that would be easy to remember 10/20/10. To keep things simple they decided to get married down at city hall. She also had to find a wedding dress that would be ready within a few weeks. I was part of the wedding dress hunt and it's not as easy as it sounds. Luckily she's a sample size so she was able to find one off the rack and just had to get it cleaned. I really liked her flower bouquet and I later found out that my daughter Evan made it after watching various YouTube videos. I like the unusual flowers and colors they picked.
Flat Fish Paper Arts was born many years ago when blogging first started. My family did a lot of camping and diving along the California coast. California halibut are huge fish that start out as any normal fish. As they age, one eye will start to move to the other side and the halibut will become flat so it can lay on the bottom of the ocean with both eyes facing up.
I always like the idea that we all start out the same but life experiences slowly changes us. In my case, my creative talents went the way of paper arts. Flatfish are always looking up when they mature and as with any artist, we see inspiration in everything around us - always looking up.

Years ago a local dive shop had a photo of a diver who caught a halibut so big he had to throw it over his jeep to take the picture. Our little spoof with our daughter sitting in her toy jeep with dad's halibut on the hood. 1987
