So here's something I've been working on (and have posted at various stages in other discussions) I really don't know where this one came from, but I'm pretty damn happy with it. It's difficult to see the details from here (It's a 6 x 4 ft. canvas) but I was playing with the similarities between space and the sea, and with transforming real living objects into non-living ones (I tried to make the jellyfish seem like it was made out of cloth/ribbon/string. There's a needle and thread poking out of its dome.) What do you guys think? What makes a successful surreal painting? Am I on the right track? C&C always welcome!
