Oil on archival 1/8" ampersand gessobord panel - 5" x 7

Another painting from the "artifact series", these shells have migrated from Apalachicola, Florida  to Birmingham, Alabama by way of Uncle Bob's suitcase. Laid out on his mahogany table to catch the afternoon sun, they offered some new challenges for me to paint. The translucent pinks of the spiny one and the cross texture of the other kept me entertained.
