Sometimes it's good to take a break from the usual projects to do something entirely different. In this case, I had a free afternoon, so I took an old trash painting that had been hanging in my living room, threw on some Kill Bill Vol. 2, and sat down to add a kraken to it. I was very happy with the result--I don't usually work in paint, and I think the kraken works pretty seamlessly with the existing painting. I have a notion now to go out hunting for some more of these old vintage pieces. I know I wouldn't be the first person in the history of art to add monsters to old paintings, but it sure is fun!
