Apotheosis of the Shrimp!

PREBREEN

Melissa W. has been bugging me for some time to do an oil spill breen, but for some reason the subject seemed too large to get my arms around until recently. The aquatic apocalypse elevates this from a simple case of pollution to a possible wiping out of all life, martyring all the life in the ocean. Every painter at some point in his career has to do an Apotheosis, and this is mine! If there was ever a case of elevating sea life to the devine, this is it!

Flowering Threat

Creepy prebreen. Should I have left the original alone to crawl along the lobes of my brain as was? I will usually leave a painting like this alone, respecting its space. But, well, for better or worse, the story took over, my painting hand got slap happy and here is the result!
