Mimic octopus added to Buddha’s Reef

Oh yeah! The first of many Indo-Pacific reef creatures to be added. I can’t begin to tell you how exciting it was to paint this fella. Interesting creature, the mimic octopus. It has learned to mimic other reef creatures to evade predation including lionfish, sea serpents, and flounder.

Dabbling with acrylics.

I thought I would dabble a bit in acrylics last night. It was quite frustrating having to work is quicker than I do with oils, but I got the hang of it again. I plan on adjusting colors in the sky by adding more layers, and then I can focus on the reef life!

I am making great strides in building this beautiful Bali reef scene. I plan on adding more blue, pink, and yellow corals as well as TONS of Pacific reef fish. Stay tuned for more updates!

This is a 36″x24″ oil on canvas work I have stored in my office. Here in Florida, as well as most parts of the globe, enjoy fishing for these strong sportfish. This pelagic animal grows very quickly and have voracious appetites. The reference photo for this painting was uncredited, but I would love to know who snapped the shot!
