Fish food

This image is a bit of a change from the previous large scale animal paintings.  Whether the artist was trying to make a statement with this piece of work or not i am not sure.  Perhaps that we are a food obsessed society?  I would like to hear some of your interpretations.

Giant Eel

This creature, similar to the last post, looks like it belongs to the deep ocean, possibly a remnant from ages past.  An Eel like creature that has grown to unfathomable proportions, an unquestionable king of the sea.  The lone scuba diver makes for a good scale.  It almost appears that the creature is as intruiged by the diver as the diver is of it.

This creature, reminiscent of a jellyfish can be envisaged living in the deep, deep sea and has possibly risen up from the deep dark canyon featured in the lower right of the painting. As this creatures is likely thought of as a rare and ancient creature, the diver looks on in what could only be described as awe.

Something about the way this is painted makes it appear big and strong, yet harmless unless you were to provoke it... Would you agree?

Dinosaur skull

This painting is certainly one of my favourites.  I imagine the massive structure in the centre to be the skull of an enormous herbivorous dinosaur like creature that would graze these endless grassy plains.  Eventually succumbing to old age it gracefully collapsed where it now rests.  Like a great old tree, its skeleton became home to many other animals like the white wolves and crows that are pictured.

Comment on what images this painting conjures up in your mind.
