Hold Fast


The cheeky octopus clutches onto the ship's anchor as it rises out of the sea, and my, what a surprise that will be for the crewmen!

Painting Process

Alternating shades of yellow and green acrylics were used to create a hazy backdrop for the cephalopod, while various colors of gouache and dark green enamel were used to finely detail his form.

Paper Prints
The 8 x 10 Hold Fast prints are produced with archival ink on glossy paper and are perfect for those of you who prefer to frame your art.

Canvas Prints
The ready-to-hang Hold Fast canvas prints are produced with archival ink on museum-grade, gallery-wrapped canvas and extend 1.25 inches off the wall, so there's no need for a frame. There are several sizes available and each limited-edition giclee is signed and numbered out of only 40 Artist Proofs. Please allow up to three weeks for delivery of canvas prints, as they are custom-built at the time the order is placed.
