Undine (acrylic on canvas)

octowoman

Back in my over-prescribed indigent human experiment geodon depakote days I made a painting of an octopus with a woman’s head that was far more stylized than this, but ultimately very static and safe, heavy like lead on it’s canvas board the way my thoughts and my body and eyelids were heavy like lead under the anti-psychotic spell. I came across that canvas recently with a twinge of distaste, both of the memory of post-breakdown days and the knowledge that I am capable of doing better than that.

So this much more powerful and flowing octopus woman took over that little canvas, and was so much more dynamic than the over-medicated octopus that she even draws all the little undines to her. Now that’s magnetism.
