painting big

Hello! I am so excited to share these new paintings with you guys! I spent the last few days painting something a little bigger for a change...  really big. Like three x five feet big.

This sumi ink & acrylic matador was a commission for the lovely Loren of Loren Hope Designs - stay tuned for pictures of it in her living room once it's framed! I hear she has some Society Social design elements that will compliment it beautifully too.

I also confronted my fears of the sea and painted some sumi octopi (octopuses?). Did you know about my sea phobia? I am deathly afraid of non-land-dwellers and do not eat sea food. It's my tragic flaw.

Here they are... I mean look at these monsters. Why do you people eat this?...

I had so much fun letting my imagination and my brush strokes run wild on a bigger scale. Although the garage floor will never be the same (sumi ink really likes to splatter)

As much as a certain non-pink-chair-allowing roommate would like to keep an octopus to hang on our wall, I plan to make these available for sale. Please contact me if you are interested!

So cool! I understand, I saw Jaws as a child and the ocean was always terrifying to me. But, I do love sushi. Probably because it doesn’t look like a whole fish or octopus. Yuck.

The matador is really amazing! and the second octopus is beautiful too, probably because you can’t actually see its scary face!

Go big or go home! Like the octopi, (it is really an awkward word). Ps I hate seafood too EXCEPT calamari, I don’t know why, it’s actually pretty weird. I just ignore the fishy membrany taste. Ok I’m done. Sorry to gross yall out.

Hi,
I love the Matador painting. Can I ask how much it is? Also, Do you ever sell posters of your work? I’m nut sure if I can afford the actual painting. It’s quite lovely!
