This is one of a new series of small paintings called Little Gems. This one is 8" by 8" and is a study of an octopus - a beautiful sea creature. I have used iridescent gel on the main body which enhances the colours. The sides are painted so further framing is unnecessary. Octopuses are considered the most intelligent of all invertebrates. Scientific studies are increasingly confirming that they are sentient creatures.Studies have shown that octopuses learn easily, including learning by observation of another octopus. They can solve problems, as when they remove a plug or unscrew a lid to get prey from a container. They are the first invertebrates to be seen using tools, such as using coconut shells to hide from potential predators and using rocks and jets of water in a way that could be classified as tool use. The common octopus has a wide array of techniques it uses to avoid or thwart attackers. Its first—and most amazing—line of defence is its ability to hide in plain sight.
