I am enjoying painting from a bag of tiny sea shells a friend lent me. I find inspiration in the least suspecting places these days. I am enjoying painting from random photos taken quickly. This has changed from last years art, as I was painstakingly taking photos and setting up still life images with perfect lighting. Frankly I feel so liberated working this way.
Here is the little bag of tiny little shells I hope to be digging into some more. The friend who lent them to me must have so many sea shells as she lent me a whole shoe box full. This is what happens when you live in an area where there are lots of sea shells on the beaches. You become a collector. In my case I am a collector and painter of sea shells.
