yes, bless the little foram. although... i had to dig those things out of a big pile of sand with a microscope and tweezers in my oceanography class and after my 100th one i was ready to curse forams to oblivion.

so, i <3 the snail. it isn't microscopic.

and the peacock and the hedgehog are beautiful.

What great reconstructions.  You did a great job taking one idea and expertly molding it into something new.

Haha, remember making quick scribbles and turning them into drawings?! These totally remind me of that. Definately more whimsical, the peacock is aweome, love it.

Those are Marushkas- they're not paintings, they're screenprints. Marushka was an art collective in the 1970s with a goal to make affordable art for the masses. They're actually really collectible on EBay and go for a lot of money (like $30-$40)- my friend collects them.

i went to eBay before i started painting and looked up some of marushka's comparable prints.  the ones i saw went for a little more than $5 (the smaller, ocean-themed ones).

at the flea market there was ONE more piece that the lady wanted to sell me. . .she said it was part of this set.  it looked sort of like the shell or horseshoe crab. . .only it had been STUFFED.  someone had made a 3D version of the critter and stuffed it with cotton.

i guess i wasn't the first one to try and "revamp" those prints.

OH MY GOD!  THIS CHANGED MY LIFE!!!

no really.  pretty fun stuff.  i have to say, i think you desecrated a perfectly good horseshoe crab, but the fantastic peacock renders it excusable. 

rock on with yo' bad self.
