I spent some recent time in New Orleans in a gallery that had a lot of work by the surrealist artist Daniel Merriam. I stared at it for a long time and thought "I wanna do...complicated...monochromatic...swirly...thingies..."

12 x 12 mixed media on board. They don't make enough shades of sea-green colored pencils, let me tell you.

While I'm not displeased with how it turned out for a first attempt, I keep thinking it should be about eight feet tall and then I could pack all KINDS of weird little thingies into the margins. I should probably stifle this urge. But the color scheme, jarring as it is, does kinda work for me, and I bought more sea green and maybe I should do another one.

For sale, will wind up at Anthrocon if nobody makes me an offer first.
