Art: Scuba-Doo - Rip of Rebecca Korpita's Block Head, Bathing Beauty by Artist Doris H. David
This was painted as a tribute to Becky Korpita and her work which I have so admired for a long time. It is a take off on her little "Blockheads" which is a series she has been painting. I thought it might be nice to add another visitor to the beaches that Becky often depicts and this fellow is a snorkeler. (with a hairy chest, might I add.) I have painted him in my pop art style and really had fun doing it. I had planned on adding a shark, however, I didn't want to disturb the balance of nature too much. Incidentally, I do know that lobsters aren't red until you cook them, but thought a brownish green one just wouldn't do.

I have never painted anything so small in my life! It is really a different kind of experience. I learned a lot.
