Eight Legs Are Better Than Two

As hinted at earlier, I have some sneak peeks of a work-in-progress painting I've been plugging away at. I started this one last year and shunted it to the side to work on other projects, but since it would fit perfectly for this upcoming show in March, I whipped it back out again to finish.Done in a faux-circus-side-show-poster theme with a slight Northern Renaissance influence (there's a hefty amount of gold leafing on this one), it's a bit large for me at 11x14". I'm so glad I didn't paint it any smaller though, as I had to use my smallest brush for the portraiture.He's coming along, though! I just need to add some tentacles to those writhing legs, and paint an elaborate banner down towards the bottom and it will practically be done.It always feels so good to complete a project that has been lying around unfinished forever. Yes sirree.

Happy Wednesday, folks!
