"The bioluminescent glow of a jellyfish has a greater purpose than personal vanity. It is also used as a defense mechanism by drawing attention to the presence of a potentially tasty predator. There's always a bigger fish. " This painting is not framed but the sides of the canvas are painted so a frame is not required if that is your preference. It is coated with a gloss finish varnish. This painting was completed on January 13, 2016.

I create abstract/surreal oil paintings using techniques that draw largely on the wet on wet technique made popular by Bob Ross. This influence can be seen especially in the backgrounds. The abstract concepts are placed and created in a more realistic environment. The focal object(s) are created with textures such as rocky surfaces or smooth organic shapes with an attention to lighting and shading that can sometimes be absent from abstract paintings. I also tend to work in definitive color schemes such as reds, blues, browns, etc.
