Squid – Mr. Squiggles

Another coaster painting, I am not sure if I want to go back into this one but it is signed for now…  Might deepen the blue at the bottom, what do you all think?

The original one
Artists will often let work sit for a while and go back into them to fix things they did not see right away.  I mostly know what I wanted to do and I did go back into this one and darken it up, There are a few minor fixes I did as well.  I will leave the original up for comparison.

Whale Tail in Blue

Apparently nothing is sacred in the world today, I was doing a google search for image references for my coaster painting series and looked up “whale tail”.  To my surprise there came up a lot of girls with their thong panties sticking out of there jeans looking like a whales tail just before it sinks back into the depths of the ocean.  The pictures where almost all candid, which disturbs me but that is a different discussion.

I am a little scared to google “raven’s beak”, all kidding aside here is the painting that came out of that search:

Buy this and get a chuckle every time!

Now that I am thinking about it, I think it would be funny to do a diptych of actual whale tail and girl while tail side by side.  Artsy though nothing crude 🙂
