Divingbell Behemoth

Movers and Shakers

"I have seen landscapes...which, under a particular light,
made me feel that at any moment a giant might raise his head over the next ridge.
Nature has that in her which compels us to invent giants:
and only giants will do."

--- C.S. Lewis

I found this quote on Charles Vess' site and thought it fitting. I'm working on a series of watercolors of local beaches and marinas that are destined to have giants in them. The above monster was one designed to fit into one of these paintings of Huntington Beach Pier but found it's way into this old postcard look instead. Now I just might want to do olde tyme postcards instead~

Awesome, I can just imagine this thing lumbering out of the water. Love the postcard format too, great idea for a series.
