"Cape Cod Shells" 8x8

Oil On Hardboard 8"x 8" Commission NFS

For the last month I have been working on completing several commission pieces. “Cape Cod Shells” is the final one. The client sent me a wonderful collection of shells gathered by her family on vacations to Cape Cod. My mission was to select from this array of shells and create a painting. It turned out to be one of the more challenging paintings I have done in a while. It’s good to be challenged.

Now that I have finished my last commission of the year I am closing down my studio for a while. It’s time to turn my attention to family, friends and the holidays. I would like to thank everyone who purchased a painting from me this year and to everyone who stopped by my blog and took a look. I got some great feedback and comments on the pieces I posted. I truly appreciated hearing from everyone. I’ll be back in January with new work.

despite the array of shells, you have unified this panting, making one shell grow naturally out of another shell. wishing you all the best, have a peaceful holiday.

M. I knew this was your's the moment I saw the little image on DP. I only just now have a moment to take it all in, how totally gorgeous it is!! Challenging yes, but the fact that each shell is so thoughtfully painted and each balances and boosts the other, I LOVE it!!
