oil on museum quality Ampersand Gessobord panel
6" x 8"
Another year has gone by and again I have neglected this poor blog. Well, today is a new day and a new commitment to keep you, my loyal followers, abreast of my creative efforts. By now you are aware that oysters are my go-to models when I have been away from the easel or wrestling with my Muse. A singer does scales to keep their instrument sharp, I paint oysters. Besides, I like painting oysters! They remind me of snowflakes - no two are alike. This little piece reminds me of Salvador Dali's ubiquitous "The Persistence of Memory." The shell of the lower oyster seems to melt over the edge of the table like a ripe Camembert in the warm sun.
