Meet Emile the Octopus. When I was a child one of my favorite books was called Emile: The Helpful Octopus, which is still in print and available on Amazon.
This octopus was a gift to my son John just because he wanted one. She measures about 36 inches by 36 inches. Enjoy
These fish were ordered by a friend here in Los Zacatitos. I stressed a little about the colors that I selected but it turns out the colors were perfect for the location they were going to hang. These fish are both about 18 inches wide.
Instead of just painting the fish realistically I decided to add a little color. I am inspired by the Mexican artist Sergio Bustamante. These new babies are only 12 inches wide and made with paper mache clay instead of paper strips.
I have five on a wall in a sort of ‘fish army’ school and the orange/red ones don’t have wall homes yet. Enjoy.
Just finished this Whale Tail. I painted this tail using metallic paint which adds some sparkle to the tail. It stand 14 inches tall.
Three new snappers recently went to a new home in San Jose del Cabo, BCS, Mexico. Just happily swimming (on the wall) together.
