12x12" Oyster on 1.5" deep gallery wrapped canvas

Another one of my recent 12x12" oyster paintings.
12x12 Oyster on 1.5" gallery wrapped canvas 
One of my newest interests is oysters.   I love a dozen (or two) lightly steamed with horsey, cocktail, saltines, and of course an ice cold adult beverage.  Now I've found I love painting them too.  The shapes and colors are so interesting and gives a lot of room for interpretation and expression.  This is one of three I recently did in 12x12" format.  I like doing the vignette style background too.   To me it adds another element of freshness and expressiveness.
