This exquisite oyster is one of many “collected” from a raw bar in Austin, Texas. Once I have enjoyed the succulent morsels, I bring home their shells in a doggy bag (much to my family’s chagrin) to use as models. If I can’t live by the sea, then I must bring the sea to me.
This piece is on a gallery wrapped canvas and the painting continues around the sides. The work comes ready to hang.
