Octopist. Steve Meyerholz Steve Meyerholz
Octopist is a painting of an Octopus on a 47”x23” heavy duty board. The Octopus is really close up, so there is not much of him showing, just two tentacles, his eyes and his forehead. His eyes are red with black pupils, and they look very similar to the number 8, and the white part of the eyes have a lot of yellow in them. He is orange, red-orange, yellow, pink and red with white and yellow warts all over him. The Octopus has blue bubbles and waves around him letting it’s viewers know that he is in water. I used basics, golden & liquitex (high-end acrylic paints) and high quality paint brushes to paint this. The name octopist came from his squinting eyes, because this is the expression that humans have when they are pissed off.

I have worked extremely hard to become the artist I am today, so my work means everything to me. Therefore I package all of my art with care. First, I choose a box that the painting fits tightly in and set it aside. Then I wrap the painting in a protective skin of plastic, add cardboard padding (a thicker, stiffer layer of protective cardboard), and wrap it with bubble wrap. I take the wrapped painting and put it into the box, filling it as completely as possible. Then I tape the box closed, put “fragile, handle with care” labels on all sides, put a new package of hanging hardware in an envelope and tape it to the box.
