New Instrument


18" x 60" Acrylic & Ink on Maple Panel, Black Walnut Frame. 2024

Part of the ongoing "Curious Creatures" series. I have always been fascinated by the octopus. They are one of the most neurologically complex creatures on the planet. This blue octopus has found itself a new instrument. I'm not sure of the story behind it...did it fall into the sea? Was it stolen? Whatever the case it is now in the tentacles of a new intelligent being.
