He is the pet octopus and his owner's ship began to sink and he is saving him now. But he is crying because he may be too late. But he's not too late. He just does not know it yet. The hot air balloon is the captain's ride home. : )

beautiful. :3

De Wilde said...

It is beautiful, amazing colour, and so much emotion in those eye's! You are a very talented artist and illustrator and I only wish I had half the imagination that you do! xoxo

audrey said...

How very very very happy I am to see you back on here, Mita. ♥ ♥ ♥ You have been missed.
This is the first octopus I wouldn't be afraid to encounter ~ he is a beautiful octopus with friendly eyes (although they seem a little sad). I love the monkeys on the hot air balloon. I would like to take a trip into your imagination.

I can not say anything because with my mouth open I can not speak!
I must return, again and again to get used to see this illustration without surprise, but I doubt that it happens
Very good,
(beautiful hot air balloon, I do not know why I had a hunch that I would see something like that)

Ces said...

Bam! She disappears and returns with a bang! So lovely to see you this morning. Beautiful illustration, my dearest Mita. Sigh. I missed you. Tsup!

Rabbit Town Animator said...

Oh am so glad to see you back! I think this is amazing (as always). Great work on the textures, I like your wave patterns and how the octopus is like a balloon...carrying away a ship. Love it!

Purpletreebird said...

Beautifully painted, I'm a bit scared though! ;o)

renilde said...

tera said...

Wonderful!

Ted Blackman said...

This is really cool, one of my favorites. I had a fever nightmare when I was a kid about an octopus coming at me with a flashlight. He looked like this guy. But I don't care, this is a truly bitchen piece, Mita.

-P.O.T.

Ted Blackman said...

Oh yeah.. glad you're back. I thought you were gone for good.

Juan Carlos Partidas said...

Wow.... this image is a dream come true... it´s amazingly beautiful. I have enjoyed it a lot. :)

This time no greetings from Louise. She is sitting in balloon and flying to her sisters.... I will be back when I return....

Miss Rosette Brune said...

what a lovely image!
I would like to meet you...him...in the sea,
hope you feeling better

Jose said...

Your illustrations are so deep...one just can guess the hidden meaning in the shape of the octopus´eyes.

Valerianna said...

The waves are rather Minoan.... like them!

nelleke said...

This is nice! I like the combination of the octopus and the balloon, that rhymes :-)

My Dog Has No Nose said...

Mita .... the sadness in those eyes.... a picture as a needle that weaves a thousand words ... the resonance is poetic ... there is hope, then there is none, the patterns are like stars, the moon is like the eyes, and those roman wave tiles are visual palindromes - bet you never knew that

:) hugs

Michaele Razi said...

Simply wonderful and lovely! I love the story quality of this piece along with poignant expression. I just love it!

Ana said...

Hello, terrible blogger.
Just kidding, I'm very happy you are back :)
I've always wanted to fly in a hot air balloon...now you have given a touch of magic to my dream. I really hope I can see this during my sleep tonight.

Ana said...

I love the eyes and the texture in the octopus skin ♥

IGNATZ said...

Ah, still I can not say a word, (I'm still with my mouth :O) but I think this is one of the best jobs I've seen here! ♫
Oh, OK you're invited, perhaps next year, Legian, who knows)
No, No, adorable, is an adjective greatly exaggerated, nice guy is sufficient :)
Thanks!!!

rachel awes said...

i love how you create out of a space of dreams/of what lies in between/...
oh to be an octopus ~ all that is possible!
xox

Horacio said...

Me gusta mucho!
what a great illustration! i love the colors and the waves!! To see the octopus eyes is to be transported in her life.

PS. Disfruto cada unos de tus trabajos asi como de saber que sigues soñando!! Abrazos.

Becca Illustration said...

Beautiful work! Especially love the ship :-) Thanks for your comment hehe...I'm finally finishing some illustrations for my own stories! How are you lovely? much love xxx

art is jok(k)e(n) said...

what i saw when i closed my eyes, no, what i saw when i opened my eyes: a (slightly) different palette with more luminous and bright colors. There must be a reason for ..... new challenges , perhaps .....or new insights.......
I like the lowest part of you image, the waves: the whole scene looks quite inconspicuous but underneath, in the deepest ink blue waves is some danger waiting....
Nice contrast with upper part

Andrew Finnie said...

pleasure :) ... you have a wonderous unspoilt gift, you know how rare that is? thank you for sharing it with us.

Surabhi said...

Oh Mita, what a lovely illo. And I am already at the seaside just by looking at it. The colors and textures in the painting are beautiful.

Jose said...

786 years ? I thought ...one thousand :)
Pastel. A little bit...delicate...But I think you may do it quite well.You need to be patient...You have the quality as one can see in your paintings
A hug my little fairy

Ces said...

Hello darling, November is Movember, grow a mo(ustache) or No(shaving)vember. It is to call attention to men's health. Ahh it's Thanksgiving Day here in the US. Happy Thanksgiving to everyone, regardless of where they live. I have lots of reason to give thanks for you. Tsup!!!

Where is your moustache? There are still a few days left. So far Shirley, Andrew, Karen Whittaker and Bella Sinclair are sporting a "mo". I know you have a cute one of you. :)

Ces said...

OH MY GOD!!! You look so adorable. Hehehehe! I love it. Thank you. Tsup!!! I love you!!! Please take care.

Alfredo said...

Alandroide said...

Dear Mita, the eyes of the octopus has captivated me. And the idea of ​​traveling through the heavens in a boat not a bad idea.

How are you? I hope that very well

... said...

Wow! What a beautiful illustration! Truly captivating.

Sunny said...

this illustration is so dreamy~!

wish you a beautiful day miss mita!

IwoX said...

Ini indah! Ciuman!!!

Beautiful and magical as ever. I always love the texts you write below.... so poetic :)

How are you Mita?

huge hug going right in your direction from Lisbon express :P

F.

Ces said...

I have something for you over at my blog.

roberto said...

MMmmmmm, I'm still :O
(but less)

roberto said...

Ehhh, I already closed my mouth,
I can see clearly a great advance in your way of painting, creativity, still intact, (I do not think that creativity grows, or you have it or you do not have it, and you have it!
perhaps one should keep active, to develop, nothing more.
Hey, you have it!!!! :)
Ehhhh. I would like to see some movement ... you know ;)
♥x3 :)

Vilt og vakkert said...

Heisann!

Here I am, my dear ;:OD)
For the third time this Autumn I have a cold, and I'm tired of having sore throat.
It is dark and stormy outside, and I have lot to do inside, so blogging has had a law priority lately.
I am really glad to hear from you, thinking of you from time to time.
You have made a wonderful illustration to a text that made me recall the last news. Two young men (25 and 28) have been washed to sea by a rogue wave while they filmed a spectacular natural scene for a new Norwegian feature film. They're still not found.
I see Odin's face on the hot air balloon... Is it a coincidence?

Have a nice week, think of you ♥♥♥

Castro Smith said...

ciao! you will like the masks im making! what are you up tox

Shirley said...

I am transported by this wonderful illustration, Mita. Wow! I have missed your lovely work..and I'm so sorry for the delay at my visits. By the way, your mustachio is lovely! : ) Hope you have been well dear friend, and many thanks for your sweet support at my blog..you really are wonderful! Happiest of holidays coming up to you..big hugs from me and the faeries! : )

Ces said...

Hello, I am just stopping by to see how you are. By the way, I love how the octopus is transporting that ship. I love the waves. TSUP!

Andrew Finnie said...

oh so this is water colour? like real pigment paper and clear stuff? Ho! What a grasp you have. Watercolour is the hardest medium you can work with - so unforgiving, but so much joy when you do it right -as you have

ha my magic word is 'mythtest' - sort of like a lie test but better

Saturnino said...

Mita Bonita, yes, I'm alive. What about you? You are more like a ghost lately.

Fleur said...

oh my, those puppy-eyes look so cute! he looks just like a giant cute babyhead!! i love him already!!!

Helena said...

what a great way to travel, i love this!

Andrew Finnie said...

Hehe Mita you are so talented it is just as annoying to visit you as it is to visit ces, you know how bad it makes me feel to see your wonderful work? Sometimes I must look at it twice a day because it makes me feel so bad :)

Roberto said...

I wish you a good weekend (no rain)♫

Tango Chow said...

ah-ha! it would be very interesting I can fly with a giant octopus

martinealison said...

Aujourd'hui il pleut beaucoup en Bretagne... Toutes ces petites gouttes d'eau pourraient venir gonfler ta mer... Une pieuvre au doux regard.
Plein de gros bisous

My Princess, keep your tentacles on me {♥}

I don't know if you have seen but I fixed your domain name since one or two weeks.

lakhsmitaindira.com goes to flipcard view

www.lakhsmitaindira.com goes to snapshot view

I hope you appreciate. I still think that you should take it as your main URL, or it's not very useful... What's your point?

donny* said...

Mita, this is absolutely wonderful! And I love octopuses nearly as much as birds. Yes, it's been a while, but I had to take a bit of a social media break for my own good. That's how it gooooo-ooooo-oooooooes.

Pásztohy Lili said...
