I LOVE this painting! I like the colors, and the sparkle. It looks almost like it's going to start moving any second.

Wonderful looking beta, Tony, I had a beta and it lived for 8 years which is almost unheard of, in fact some people did not even believe me, they said that they thought someone in the house had to switch the fish, I knew for sure that was not the case as I knew all the markings and the way he acted when I was near his fish bowl

Very cool! I love the look in his eyes almost like he was posing for you.

Thank You, Gracias, Merci beaucoup,......to all of you for taking the time to look and fine comments. I humbly appreciate them all.
Beta's have to be the coolest fish for an aquarium. I usually see them in very small containers. In an aquarium they look so much better and parade around like the king.

I found a cool trick for the bubbles. New layer, black pearl sticker, copy for more bubbles, then set the layer opacity to 25%....!!
