Happy Feet


SKU: N/A Categories: ,


Many times, I’ve been referred to as the “Octopus Artist”. I got on a real kick of making these! They’ve been so enjoyable that I’ve made them in many different compositions and colors. The elegance and playfulness of their tentacles are fun to layer, and wind around each other and the canvas. While making the octopus Ringo Starr, I learned that Octopus pick up shiny objects while they travel along the ocean floor and put these sparkly items in piles or “gardens”, as Ringo wrote. So I thought it was fitting to add sparkling paper and gems to all my octopus tentacles. Happy Feet is one of those that presents a little mystery, just a suggestion of an exquisite sea creature. This piece is also more refined color-wise, with very soft sea foam greens, some teals and turquoise and shades of gray and white, so It can go in more formal rooms like a dining area. Also the Octopuses are popular bathroom art, as they are serene and calming in watery settings. I adorn the tentacles with pearls and crystals so when you look at Happy Feet, you’ll notice the ornamental quality. It looks as if it’s shining and reflecting light, a little fancier than your average Octopus!
