4.  Octopus Virtuoso by Jennifer Beard

I was honored when an Altrusa member, Liz Svigals, asked me to paint a violin.  She knows that I like to draw marine life, inspired by my job at the local non-profit Harbor WildWatch, and suggested an octopus drawing.  Not long afterwards, I decided that the octopus should be trying to play the violin.  And why not...the octopus is such an intelligent creature!

I have always loved science, particularly botany and marine biology.  So, several years ago I attended the University of Washington's Natural Science Illustration certificate program.   I learned so much and I love examining the details of the natural world through illustration.
