Reno's workshop...

It's not hard to tell whose inspired this whimsical style :) ehhehhummm...Michelle Allen. I took a sketch of a squid I did in Carla Soneheim's silly online workshop and morphed it into this little octopus, who actually has a whole lot of meaning for Stella and I packed into it, more on that in a minute... What do ya think? Nose? No Nose??? I used acrylic paints...
