6" x 8"
Pastel on canvas panel
A friend sent me a photo of this shell tonight. I had just finished a piece to post for January first, and felt pretty good about it, so before putting away my "toys," I pulled the colours in the shell and painted it.  

I have a nautilus shell similar to this one on a shelf in another room, but mine lacks this much colour. It's more like a standard opal than this "fire opal" kind of presentation.  It was fun to try to capture the essence of the shell.


Egg Shell

"Egg Shell"
8" x 8"
Oil on canvas panel
The egg purveyor at the farmer's market this morning went through about three dozen eggs to find a dozen different colored eggs for me.  This one is similar in color to the ones from the past couple days, but it is adorned—with speckles!  

This piece will be listed with and for sale through Dailypaintworks.  Check out my gallery by clicking here to see 94 of my paintings all in one easy to access place.  This won't get you to the auction site, but it's just a click away once you're in my gallery.
