Oil on museum quality Ampersand Gessobord panel
6" x 8"
This is new twist on an old theme. I really enjoyed painting the warm tones of this oyster painting. The slightly briny oysters were shucked at a friend's party over the weekend. They were staged on a venerable aluminum cookie sheet, the brushed surface of which picked up and diffused the warm light of the kitchen in a delightful way. The yellow and pink tones of the shell and flesh of the oyster played well against such a background.
