They look like the covers of books that I badly want to read, but would never live up to the art on the cover. MAYBE if it was a choose your own adventure!

Thor - as always you have shared some absolutely fantastic paintings with us. I love how life like your scenes are!

Please tell me that you are making prints of "Tentacle Difficulties" - that piece really stands out to me!

Much Thanks!! I know all are being published. "Tentacle Difficulties" was a special piece I did based on brainstorming one time at a signing I did in Honolulu at the US Navy Exchange mall. I have a good size following of Divers and SEALS there and we all loved the idea of depicting some exciting undersea adventures...legends of the deep...etc. I will do one with tiger sharks soon....and maybe a 1960's Navy "frogman" with knife drawn like an old Loyd Bridges, "Sea Hunt" sorta feel. "Tentacle Difficulties" will be a limited giclee series of only about 50. You can call the Thor Gallery in Waikiki if you want one ordered.

I have done a lot of diving in many sites in the world, but my favorites have been the places where there is uncertainty as to what's around...dark murky water, foggy days with distorted visibility or thick kelp forests where ya almost need your compass to find your way out of down there are all recipes for imagination to make all things "bigger than life"!! Anyways...all these things inspire a painting.

Tom-

Love your latest works. Simply amazing and as usual, inspiring for me. The undersea pieces are just magnificent.

Like one of the prior posts has already said - so many shades of blue just draws you into the scene.

Thanks for sharing. Hope to catch up with you again sometime. Cheers! G
