Okay, I need the fish. Are you willing to sell him?

You're kidding? Really? It's just a little pencil/watercolor piece - hadn't thought about selling. I don't like where my signature is as I feel it intrudes. Let me do another one and think about it. OK?

OH - forgot to add that I decided to do a watercolor after taking tons of photos, none of which looked decent. Then, I walked through Chinatown, hoping to get a nice photo of a whole fish and realized that they don't look so good when they aren't photographed by a professional photographer.

Okay, but what I love about the fish is the spontaneity and the "looseness," for lack of a better word. I have a collection of fish art, believe it or not, some sculptural, some 2 dimensional and I can see your little fish among them. I often like the sketches for a painting as much or more than the realized painting.

My prices are very low (as you know) so I will have to think about it.
