This is an excellent example of one of Sylvia Spicuzza's rare 'finger paintings': not only is it remarkably large, but it also shows her mastery of the difficult medium - that she is comparable in her skill to such masters as Picasso and Matisse. Here we can see an underwater scene. Two goldfish swim though an underwater teeming with life. The modeling made with monochromatic strokes adds to an otherworldly underwater effect. 15.25 x 20 inches, artwork 28.38 x 23.25 inches, frame Stamped with artist's signature, lower right
