Here is the finished piece.
The final step was to paint in squid dance step instructions to the background and sign it in gold. I love all the pattern and how this piece came together in the end. I am proud of this piece and it reminds me where I should continue to be putting my efforts and energies into creating art. I know a lot of people including some of my students came down to see the show, thanks for that!
Update: It sold and I know it went to a good home. Shout out to Sabo Forte for grabbing this piece up!
