"Seashells and Pearl"

Oil on 8x6 hardboard panel

I love seashells, they remind me of the beach and of summer. It amazes me how perfect their shapes are. I wonder how they are formed, and what their former life was like under the sea.
I'm still playing with my background colored boards I made. This time I used a warm nuetral color behind, and a very dark charcoal gray underneath.


  1. I always wonder how shells are formed as well. These are lovely, Debbie. Love that dark gray ground.

  2. Great modeling on those difficult shells; that pearl is a genius touch, and perfectly placed!
