Calling all Artists!

I'm sure a few have seen my overall goals, but here's the full explanation! When I get back down to AR I will be re-doing my fish room. It'll be beautiful! Full of plants, aquariums, and terrariums. I am also a big fan of art. I draw all the time and I appreciate all forms of art. I'm looking to fill out my fish room with pictures from different artists!

Right now I'm asking for a few of you to draw betta fish out of the kindness of your heart and in the interest of having your work displayed. Any style is appreciated from abstract to 3D! I also would like a short bio to include under your pieces... an example of Monet's bio is below:

Claude Monet Biography:
Claude Monet was a Frenchman born in 1840 and died in 1926. Monet was a prominent member of the impressionist movement of the late 1800's. Monet painted middle-class scenes on canvas and captured the ever-changing qualities of natural light. Monet's method of applying bright colors in quick and short brush stokes on the painting surface became a distinguishing feature of impressionism.
"My garden is my most beautiful masterpiece." - Claude Monet

Please let me know if you're interested!

I'd love to draw a picture of one of your bettas for you!
I paint too, though I am still working on that, but I paint with watercolors and I am majoring in art. :D
Would I be able to send you the picture(s) through mail?
My internet is slow, so it's very unpredictable whether or not I'd be able to upload a good sized photo here or even through email...
Are you looking to buy art?

I was hoping to find a few free works first, but I will be willing to negotiate if you wanted commission. And btw yes! Sending through mail would be great! Then I won't have a reproduction just printed off.
