Hey Patrick, I have a cool idea!!!!! How about I paint one of you scratch Boards, and you scratch one of my paintings just for fun. They could be like an 8"x10" or something like that. I will give you the one I do and you give me the one you do???? You like it?? I hope so :wave::wave::clap:

Really great work on the water! As far as the Sailfish goes, there is one thing you might do if you want it to be realistic. When a sailfish is jumping out of the water, his sail (and parts of his body) turn iridescent green and red, due to his agitation -- really beautiful colors particularly in his sail. Just a thought....

:lol::lol::lol::lol::lol::lol: I can't believe how much I am changing this thing!!!! Sorry Linda, I think it is more appealing to look at with the blue fin. I just wasn't feeling the other way. Now I am just going to blend the dots a little better and NO MORE:lol::lol::lol:http://www.wetcanvas.com/Community/images/14-Mar-2012/198534-sail28.jpg
