Shell is a Winding Staircase

sundial better_7259 72ppi

In my quest to find fun shells to paint I pulled this one out of my collection. I usually paint local shells and I am guessing the sundial is a rare find in my area. I did find it listed in a shell identification book as a relatively uncommon find in my area.

The sundial sea shell reminds me of a winding spiral staircase. The colors in the shell are truly deep and rich like the finished painting. I enjoyed painting this little beauty. It amazes me that a living creature actually created such beautiful and colorful patterns.

    You paint the most beautiful shells, Heather, and your latest is no exception! It DOES look like a spiral staircase. I don’t know how you didn’t get lost in all of those swirls and curls… just amazing. Is this another tiny painting?
