Arthur Avenue Fish Market
Painting - Mixed Media
Arthur Avenue Fish Market painting from photograph by Michele Avanti
The scales of fish can be very colorful when you really look at them. Each one has its own rainbow. Then you put them on ice and even more rainbows are present in the crystals. I have taken the image I see in my mind and painted those colors onto these market fish. I don't really know what intrigues me about them, but I find them fascinating and I hope you do too.
I took the original photograph at the Arthur Avenue Fish Market in the Bronx, one of the five Burroughs of New York City.

Fish is consumed as a food by many species, including humans. It has been an important source of protein for humans throughout recorded history.
In culinary and fishery contexts, the term fish can also include shellfish, such as molluscs, crustaceans and echinoderms. English does not distinguish between fish as an animal and the food prepared from it, as it does with pig vs. pork or cow vs. beef. Some other languages do, as in the Spanish peces versus pescado. English also has the term seafood, which covers fish as well as other marine life used as food.
The modern English word for fish comes from the Old English word fisc (plural: fiscas) which was pronounced as it is today.
Over 32,000 species of fish have been described, making them the most diverse group of vertebrates. In addition, there are many species of shellfish. However, only a small number of species are commonly eaten by humans.
