Red Herring

An Art Journal Adventure prompt that I missed while on vacation was “Mystery”.  I liked how vague that prompt was as it let my creative imagination wander around all sorts of possibilities.  Since I was on vacation with no art supplies, I also had time to mull it over.  By the time I sat down at my table to create something in my art journal, I had decided that my response would be on the subject of “red herrings”, those distracting clues in many a mystery novel or movie.  I decided to make the metaphor literal and illustrate a can full of red herring.  Of course, my fish do not resemble herring and are just the product of my imagination but I think the allusion is clear.
