More broken whelks

Oil on board
12" x 12"

One, if not the first, in the series I'm growing.  To me it is interesting how the views of these things can vary with the materials: the application of the paint, the brush or knife I've chosen, the texture of the supports.

Whelk

11" x 14" oil on board
Over the summer I've been working on a series of paintings of sea shells...some broken, some completely intact...all specimens I found on the beach near Buzzards Bay.  The shells just appeal to me and they are great subjects in that they just simply hold a pose!  Don't know if anyone will be interested in them but I'm pushing ahead and hope to complete about twenty of them.
