Portuguese Man o' War, which is not actually a jellyfish but a "colonial" organism called a "siphonophore." Neat, eh? Also very deadly (or at least very painful!) but pretty neat looking
6x18" oils (new - for me - canvas size!)
Siphonophores are great!
Very thought provoking and beautiful 😊
Very cool. Used to see them a lot swimming on the beach at Galveston.
Oooh that must be cool but also a little spooky. Ever get stung?
So long ago. I am sure I did. Cannot remember details. Galveston was a wonderful place in the late 50s early 60s to a small boy. Used to go crabbing there off the piers as well as swimming and beach stuff.
Very nice how one part is owner and the other one is under the water job well done
These are really amazing creatures! You did a beautiful job portraying one!
