Field Trip to Cool Fish Art Studios

Cool Fish Art by Scott Mueller.
A few people from Better Farm last week took a field trip to Cool Fish Art Studios in Redwood to look at some pieces by the studio's owner and artist Scott Mueller—and to make some fish paintings of their own.

Scott runs his studio-gallery out of a renovated barn on his property. His work was featured at the North Country Arts Council in Watertown throughout July and will be at the St. Lawrence County Arts Council's space this month. Scott has finished pieces available for sale, but also loves creating custom pieces for the office or home—as well as designs for murals, prints, sweatshirts, or T-shirts.

Here's the farm crew playing around with some paints:

Many thanks to Scott Mueller for welcoming us into his home, sharing his artistic process with us, and for helping us make cool fish art! Check out more of his work by clicking here.
