Mixed media 9×12 in. My first in a series of octopus and ocean series, not as much factual as, colorful with a bit of whimsey. This was the piece I traded with a fellow artist at the ” Picasso Doesn’t Live Here art fair.” The octopus has almost a pearly finished skin with multiple colors. To contrast against it I used paint-sticks for the coral and the goofy fish (my version of a type of parrot fish). Not sure if there is treasure around or not but we do have a shipwreck, anchor and oil. Don’t ask about the magenta flow to the right it’s either a crack in the mantle or the remains of a missing tanker full of silly putty… or it might be just the right color to offset the octopus’s brite eyes. Regardless a very fun piece.
