A rare glimpse of the Jellyglian

I am working on large canvases and this one is 18 x 24" At least this is very large for me.
I started off with a blob of titanium white and then dobbed off some paint with my paper towel and then dobbed it back on which created some neat textures. After a light wash of gold fluid acrylics and some walnut ink I stood back and saw this creature Its a very rare Jellyglian. It lives deep down on the ocean floor and hides in caves. I was trying to stay out of the muses way and just went with it.

This is the start of the Jellyglian.

Is there really a jellyglian - or is it a creature made entirely of orange jelly. Your start picture looks as though it is going to metamorphose all on its own. Beautiful colour and texture.
