Behold the Cosmic Pufferfish!

I recently acquired a 3'x5' canvas and decided to break out the acrylics and paint something for my future living room. This was my first time painting on a canvas of this size and it was definitely a learning experience. While the final result was far from perfect, it was a fun side project.

Wow...when you say "paint," you really mean PAINT. Awesome work! You should convince Nucleus to do a Shark Week gallery once a year.
