An Accusation of Mangroves

2010

36" x 36"

Acrylic Mixed Media

One of my friends has observed that I paint a lot of squid and mangroves. Not so much an accusation as it is an observation. He showed them to me and I admit that I do paint mangroves, although I had never noticed them before. So we determined that I must have lived with mangroves in a former life...I do, however, like to eat a lot of squid in this life.

PS. There is a video of me painting this one...the first 40 minutes of the 70 minutes, anyway. I will post a link once I edit it.

I think the only reason I'd eat squid is as anticipatory retaliation...if some hideous abyssal monster ever does me in, I'm pretty sure it'll be a squid. :iconsquidyayplz:

So that's the collective noun! Love the slightly surreal colours and the way that the title collapses the abstract wave function :D
