“Shy Beauty”


60″ x 48″ acrylic on canvas (2009)


I am interested in the innate curiosity and seeming intelligence of these wonderful ocean creatures. With a bit of bashfulness and yet looking directly at the viewer, I tried to capture the beauty, intelligence, and sometimes mischievous nature of the octopus. This painting took 9 months to complete “Shy Beauty”. -dlm
