Oysters & Shells
I have always loved collecting shells, sea glass, and other interesting objects I would find while beach combing. When I was young, I kept them all displayed in my room on what I called my "nature table." I would carefully rearrange them as I added to my collection, making sure my display was perfect. It's no surprise that these were some of my first subjects to start painting. I have been studying these shells my whole life, so putting them on canvas seemed only natural.
