    Even as a vegetarian I felt compelled to get this at the thrift but no idea about signature. Signed bottom left, plus wording on the back. Both seem impossible to read.

    The creatures are sort of "built up" 3D. Is there a name for this?

    Is this piece something I should continue to research? Seems pretty cool but maybe just a local artist's work? Thoughts?




    Written on back:

    Canvas is stapled onto wood. Some cracking on edges.


    Approx 12" x 10"

    The handwritten word at bottom appears to be "SHRIMPS."

    And the signature should read like this.

    The signature intitials B.P. look correct for the signature on back. Perhaps someone will be able to decipher.

    I wonder if it was one in a series of 8. It could have taken 8 canvases to complete the image (if that was the artist's intent.)

    Good point about the orientation! They have two hooks on the back so it can go either way so I got confused. But you are correct, Debora. The way you have it matches the back now. :)

    Good idea about the series, too.

    Do we like it better this way? Definitely how it was signed!
