Althea, 47” Large Rainbow Trout
Add some colorful cheer to your home with Althea, the rainbow trout from Vermont artist Rachel Laundon. This one-of-a-kind piece is hand-carved from wood and painted with fine art acrylics in vibrant colors and patterns. The copper fins are cut from roofing material and hammered for a rich patina that complements the painted wood. The glass eyes are hand-painted and layered over antique buttons or other metal hardware, adding a touch of vintage charm.
Althea is the perfect addition to any bright, eclectic home decor. Hang her above a mantle, in an entryway, on a covered patio, or anywhere else you'd like to bring some fishy joy. The back of the fish is signed and dated by the artist and features a hanging wire for easy mounting. I'm always chasing rainbows, and Althea is sure to bring a little bit of magic to your home.
