This work is available as a Silk Scarf and Fine Art Giclee Reproductions on Paper or Canvas.

One of the most playful and whimsical of all my paintings, "I'll Tell You a Tale" also came as a very fun surprise.
After I put most of the paint down in bold zigzags and waving lines, I went for a snack and when I turned back to look at it from the other side of the room, I saw.. Well, you really ought to ask a child what they see here. Children know.

Because of the distinct creature looking out, I didn't want to do anything more to the painting, to let this just be what it was. I did a very few touch ups after that, and kept the overall effect primal.

Some people very much enjoy the aspect when they turn this work upside down. Then it looks more like a deserted tropical island with water all around.

Nothing gives me a bigger smile when I hear of the discoveries when one of my paintings is studied from another angle.

There is a ton of movement in this splash of paint. What do you make of it?
