LUSCA

Andrea Lucas's avatar Andrea Lucas

It was an ominous sign - the storm clouds rolling in fast and furious. It was clear this would be a night like no other. The conditions were ripe for an encounter with the monster octopus of the deep. It was the kind of night the sailors had only heard about in the tales from those who had survived the wrath of the dreaded Lusca... Animals are my favorite subject to paint and recently I have had the desire to paint borderline mythical creatures . I wanted to create a large scale piece with lots of color and texture. The octopus was everything I was looking for, allowing me to incorporate a folk art style that adds whimsical character to the superstitious nature of the story. This is painted on two 3ftX3ft boards and will be displayed in free standing wooden frame 6 ft. tall..
