Shelled

"Shelled" is 2.25"x2.5" oil on clayboard

When I was in Florida this year, just like on those Pier 1 Import commercials, these shells were calling to me.  The sun was shooting prisms of color reflected off the glass surrounding them...color everywhere.  Who can resist painting shells when they call to you?

Wow! Gorgeous! A lot of work went into this wee painting. My eyes would be screaming from the strain.

How do you do this so beautifully every time, Deb? Your handling of the clear glass is beyond perfection. The kitties below are delightful!

Absolutely amazing Deb - no-one else I know puts the same tiny exquisite details into such a small space as you do. All your subject matter are so unique too - love it!!! :)
