Here’s a couple of shell studies started in VB and finished up in LC.


This shell was done in the Studio with the Beach added from imagination. “Beach Shell”, acrylics on 5×7″ stretched canvas.





I set the shell up in a box with single point lighting and treated it as a Still Life. “Studio Shell”, acrylics on 6×6″ stretched canvas.




Originals available.


“Intrusion”, charcoal on 9×12″ tan toned paper, 2019

Original available, matted (black) to fit 11×14″ frame


This is a sketch done en plein air in First Landing State Park and finished in the studio. It is in a low lying area where salt water intrusion has killed many Pines and Cedars. The many standing dead trees are a popular nesting and perching site for Ospreys and Eagles.
