Octopus

The sushi chef at Hikari offered up some fun octopus. I'd wanted to paint their fun tentacles as soon as I saw them on the sushi bar. Of course I was almost sad to learn they slice the octopus for this dish, but I did want to stay with authentic serving displays so I relented. I was happy enough to grapple with the bits of sliced rings along the edges of them. It was fun and I really enjoyed the dreamy space that naturally fell into place for the still life.
