6 x 6" Oil on canvas
When my brother and I were kids, our mother was a seafood fanatic. The pleasure she experienced from eating raw clams (back in the day, when they were sewage free) was heard throughout the house. As a result, I love them as well. But, nowadays, when I'm brave enough to toss a few back, they're usually followed with a stiff shot or two of 80 proof germ killer, mixed with a whole lot of deep denial about what gets dumped into the ocean.
I digress. These clams are in honor of Mom. They're Cherrystones, her favorite, mine too. The colors I added were only hinted at in the sun, so I turned up the volume a bit. I really like this one, I think it works well in the space. I realized yesterday that I was rushing through, just to get a daily done. Not the point. So I took my time today and I'm very pleased.
And now, I'm off to the market for some clams and germ killer. Enjoy.
