This purple octopus is getting totally tubed in this whimsical, tropical, Hawaiian art by Tom Thordarson.
"With a wave crashing on the back of his head, he is certainly “in the green room” as they say in the surfing world! "Crazy Eight" is part of my 'Aumakua Series. ‘Aumakua are Hawaiian spirit guardians that watch over an ‘Ohana (family). ‘Aumakua can take many forms. In this series I am celebrating the “free spirit” of Aloha as expressed through the ‘Aumakua taking the form of the wonderful creatures of the sea including octopus, turtles and sharks. The free spirits of these sea creatures celebrate the harmony with the sea. Laughter and life’s simple pleasures are all part of Aloha. Look for the personalities of these sea creatures coming through in their own magical ways."--Thor
