Octopuss's Garden

Octopuss's Garden  2011
22x28 inches, acrylic on canvas

Remember that old Beatles tune? (I'd like to be ..... under the sea...) Boy once that's in your head it's hard to get it out - a real meme!

This is a fun piece, with scads of detail, colour and texture, and SO SHINY! (that's a by-product of the medium I'm using with my paint, it has a natural high gloss to it).  But it also makes it really difficult to photograph, so I apologize for the blur in some parts and the highlights in others.

It's great to be doing abstracts again.  I missed them while I was painting realism.  Feels like I have my balance back on the bipolartistic seesaw!

Have a wonderful Sunday.
