Jellyfish Bloom

Jellyfish Bloom – acrylic painting by Heni Sandoval

Jellyfish Bloom is a painting that I’ve just completed for my sea life series. I chose to paint a bloom of jellyfish for a couple of reasons. First, they are beautiful translucent ocean creatures which I thought would be an interesting challenge to try to capture. The second and main reason was the jellyfish has been on my mind is because they simply float through water getting all their needs met, their venomous tentacles stun their prey and also protect them from predators.

Lately I’ve been feeling that I need to chill more, honor my own boundaries and get back into what I enjoy most – painting. Last fall I worked long hours on a couple of projects in an effort to bring in more money with my art. I have to say all that expenditure of energy and work did not pay off too well. The online art shop was fun to create and I enjoyed learning a bit of Photoshop but I need to market it for the shop to be seen and I’m not sure if anyone really needs another mug, t-shirt, etc.

So I’m going to float like a jellyfish and let new ideas come to light that will be a better match for my art and also bring money in.

  1. I agree I find inspiration and creativity comes more naturally and freely when I’m not forcing or putting up expectations and the process is then much fulfilling and enjoyable.😊❤️
