Description Oil on canvas. 20' by 24'. January, 2014.This painting started out as a horizontal canvas of a Monet-style scene with trees and cliff or a skymade up of vertical daubs of paint left over from Woman With Jellyfish.. I let the landscape dry for two weeks, then had the idea of turning the picture to a vertical orientation, and now the horizontal daubs were water. On a quick inspiration, I painted in the head and webbed hands of a frog man. He looks friendly, but I dont think Id jump into the water with him.
