This is just a quick color, brush exercise. I wanted to paint something optimistic and happy. I love the salmon pink color and was finally able to reproduce that type of color on canvas. I don't know if I will ever finish this; I just needed to loosen up.
I love octopuses; they are so weird and beautiful. A lot of people know that many of the celaphod family can squirt ink in the shape of itself to fool an enemy, but did you know that at the same time it can turn completely transparent in the ocean afterwards and "disappear"? I just learned this reading books to my daughter...
I need to finish the gold statue and the painting of Jim Zamlich but I will be flying to Hawaii on Thursday and just needed a visual break from these.
