For my final project in my painting class we were allowed to do basically anything. I had two ideas 1) the self-portrait I posted a few days ago) a pink couch with an octopus on the arm. I have no idea why that came to mind but it just seemed so so lovely!
When the semester was over I started the painting. I haven't had the motivation to continue...but I need to. I thought a whole series of beautiful furniture with octopuses or other slimy creatures would be fun. Juxtaposition for the win! It also gives me an excuse to go to the Met and sketch that lovely 18th Century French furniture.
