Quicksand, oil on canvas, 18″x24″. For sale on etsy.
When I think about my childhood fears, I would have to say that quicksand was at the top of the list. Along with volcanoes spewing molten lava, radioactive vegetables, whirlpools, and giant spiders living in caves. Of course, I’ve since realized that these fears were entirely born out of watching too many Gilligan’s Island episodes (cue canned laughter).
