Quark

I’d like to be
under the sea
in an octopus’s garden in the shade.
-Richard Starkey

 

Here is Quark.  I posted an unfinished picture of him last month.  Since then I’ve added a few embellishments, cured him in the oven, and added an antique wash. 

Here is Quark as he appeared in July:  Quark

And here is Quark the completed:

For some reason he reminds me of a sea urchin.  Perhaps a little creature who lives in a sea anemone.

We would be warm
below the storm
in our little hideaway beneath the waves. 
Resting our heads
on the sea bed
in an octopus’s garden
near a cave. 
We would sing and dance around
because we know we can’t be found.
