The Boy Who Drowned

The Drowned Boy. Original 8" x 10" acrylic on heavy paper painting by Julie Kwiatkowski Schuler.
Inspired by the folk belief that one born with a blue vein on the side of one's nose was destined to be drowned. I've given my drowned boy an octopus, and some puffer fish friends.

Painting does not contain the black bars on the sides, nor the "My Good Babushka" watermark, which were included here for formatting and security purposes.

Oh, it's a puffer fish, not a furry Teddy Bear. Strangely cute still.
