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.
