Availability: 1 in stock

My latest Obsession….OCTOPUS!!!! He’e in Hawaiian. I don’t remember what started it, but let me help you understand why; Incredibly Intelligent and Curious, Three, ys, THREE Hearts, No Bones, so no matter what their size, they can squeeze through anything bigger than their beak, usually tragically short lives: once they mate, lay eggs, hatch, they die. And camouflage! If I could only paint a minuscule amount of the changes they can affect upon themselves in ten seconds! The list goes on……. Quite Simply, LOL Marvelously Complex Creatures! I am Stunned!

Acrylic applied w/Palette Knife, much texture, edges wrapped in map paper
