This is a watercolor I finished recently. It is 9x12". It was inspired by some of H. P. Lovecraft's stories, with a lot of input from my own imagination. The architecture is inspired by Islamic architecture, run through an Arabian Nights filter.

I guess when you are an artist, you are making creative soup all day long. Your ingredients go in, what you chose to look at, read, explore... But you never quite know what is going to come out. I don't think I am done with this idea yet, so don't be surprised if you see some more sea creatures emerging from my watercolors.
