Drought Ability

Hardy Survivor by Kirsten Borror

2011 Acrylic 5x5

The Steel Blue Killifish of Nigeria survives or dies annually in waterways that often dry up, or become stagnant. It's eggs remain viable under the mud waiting to hatch the next time the rains come.

God watch over my vitality and regenerate my essence when the time comes for this dark period to end. A spectacle of red, green and blue iridescence contained in a 3 inch fish that may or may not survive this year's dry season. It's a lot of celebratory display in a little creature, isn't it?
