"Coping Mechanism" 16x20" Acrylic on Canvas

I started this piece as the beginning of a series I'm creating to spread awareness on the harmful practices in place to produce goldfish. I recently came across a video describing the processes through which they breed goldfish, and found some highly disturbing, inhumane treatments. Goldfish are held and rubbed together to be forced to mate, and when they are ready to be shipped to pet stores and carnivals, they are squeezed hard to determine their strength, and "weak" one's guts come out and are killed this way. We are all inhabitants of this planet and there's never an excuse to hurt a living thing, especially when it is only for the purpose of entertainment. I am disgusted, appalled, and deeply saddened by these practices and only wish for them to end. I'd like to get these pieces in the hands of other animal life advocates. As there is currently no organization in place to counter these inhumane practices, I will personally be researching solutions and contacting big goldfish purchasers.
