I approached this still life a little differently, almost like an illustration. I sketched it roughly a few times anxious to jump into the painting. The next morning I'm sitting down with a cup of coffee and there's that morning light hitting the clams through a window. It looked so nice I photographed it twice. I felt the subject matter was bigger than me so I referenced the photo and the clams and planned it out. On this base, I approached the painting in a somewhat expressionistic manner. I feel good about this representational thing on a flat background.

The reception on the 19th was a lot of fun, quite a few people came by through the course of the afternoon. It was nice to talk to folks and friends about the art. An after-party was a nice way to relax after a project completion. I've been getting a little press and here's a link to the Sharon Advocate: http://www.wickedlocal.com/

After submitting work to a Call for Artist to exhibit at the Mass Audobon Moose Hill Wildlife Sanctuary in Sharon Mass I was extremely happy when accepted. So, from April16 to May 26 paintings will be exhibited. The theme is “Untamed Strokes in Nature”. I have to thank Jan Nareski Goba, the Exhibit Curator, for brainstorming the title and coordinating the show.
