This is my Third oil painted Octopus after receiving much acclaim for my first I decided to continue painting this wonderful deeply mysterious animal!
I recently moved to Hawaii a few years back and came in contact with the artists of the island. Most of these artists painted whales, turtles birds, and other animals that seemed to me to be very plain. Being who I am I wanted to break out of the box and paint something different. I was on YouTube and came across the octopus and was astonished by what they could do and who the are. I need to be inspired when I paint and this animal inspired me thus I started to paint this and continued with a few more pieces that you can see on my site.
Once I had a exhibit of this glorious, mysterious creature, people from around the world said, "This Is It!!! You are the octopus painter and it should be your signature." I simply smiled and said, "Thank you, I just paint my inspirations as they come to me."
