I can’t imagine Russian cuisine without salted herring (great snack for Russian vodka). The only place I can buy it here in the US is a Russian also called European store, an hour drive, so I don't get it too often. I brought fish home and was about to cut one of them when I thought it would be great to paint it first!

It took me about three hours to finish this study. The fish got a little bit dry but luckily survived. Afterwards I enjoyed it with some Russian rye bread (no vodka) by myself, because my American born husband doesn't understand it... Well, more for me:)
