Ed Parker, ASMA
9" x 12" - Acrylic/mixed media
There is a long Nautical History of the Tall Tale, of sea serpents, mermaids and monsters of the deep, of the seaman's exaggerated yarn with awhimsical sense of humor. So I guess I have followed that tradition with this painting and perhaps extended it into the area of whimsical parody. It's just for fun. It's a painting I had to get out of my system and who knows what maybe out there in the unexplored regions of the briny deep.
