Fish Wife

This is a piece generated from a monthly Art challenge here at our studio. This month's theme:
'Hey, Mama, look what I found!' of course I drew a daughter bringing a new boyfriend back home to meet a mentally disturbed mother, who is chopping fish. To be northern and grumpy, wallowing in puritanical gloom. Or an excuse to draw lots of fish. As I worked on it I thought it was much better that the daughter was bringing back a Dad who had wandered off for years. Now he's back all clean shaven, and Mum's gone nuts. Fun!
