Bumblefish
Mixed Media
on Paper
2007

This little fellow floats his life away in the gentle peace of his work. In the warm summer, the flowers are abundant and the water silky smooth, making it easy to glide about gathering sweet nectar for the rich harvest.


Bumblefish, Bumblefish, Tumblefish, too!
Hum as you go so I can tap my shoe.
Float like a butterfly, sing like a whale.
I'll give you a kiss or two if you can catch your tail!

-old nursery rhyme about the Bumblefish
