Seafood Anyone?

Oysters and Stone Crabs
16x40 each, acrylic on canvas

Taking a little departure from my landscapes in oils, I recently turned to some (oversized) still life painting in acrylics. These were done for the walls of the Seagrape Seafood Market, located next-door to my studio & gallery in Palmetto. Of course to really "know" my subject matter, it helped to sample it first (and again when I was done painting it!) If you're in the area and looking for some excellent fresh, local seafood, be sure and stop by!

The Ocean's Song

The Ocean's Song
30x30 oil on canvas

 Another exploration in the subtleties of light on waves and sea foam, as well as the structure, rhythm, and movement of the ocean... gotta admit, I'm having fun with these!
