I often chose octopuses for my subject. I am fascinated how the octopus has a body that is strong and graceful but also very fragile. I painted this octopus while in a playful mood using bright joyful and naive colors. I wanted to use this painting as a way to celebrate the inner child and allow her a chance to be uncovered. My love of gardens is also revealed by the octopus proudly displaying a poppy flower.
