The Guardian

Tim Marsh's avatar Tim Marsh

My representational work examines textures, vivid colors and movement while focusing on exotic nature. Each piece presents a unique view of life while suggesting a story or theme that may be different for each onlooker. At times, such is the case for "The Guardian", there is an element of mystery or mythology. The Octopus is clearly the main focus however surrounding elements within this painting help to tell his story. Below is a synopsis of the idea and development of this work. "Poseidon, God of the sea, called upon a mighty creature that possessed amazing abilities of disguise and transformation along with magical qualities of agility and defense to guard the knowledge of Atlantis from the abusive hands of mankind."
