Oyster on the Half Shell

Oil on Belgian Linen Panel (Museum Grade) 

This little gem of the sea was served to me at The Deckhand, an oyster bar in Round Rock, Texas. Fresh from the waters of Galveston, I had to immortalize its luscious beauty prior to devouring it with a squeeze of lemon and horseradish. The other patrons must have thought I was insane as I took pictures galore before allowing anyone in my family to touch the platter! (My family, of course, knows the routine.)

Slippery When Wet


Happy New Year!  Now that the child and husband have returned to school and work respectively, I broke out the acrylics (usually I paint with oils) and tried something whimsical.  The result is a mermaid luxuriating in a bubble bath.  I've entitled it, "Slippery  When Wet."  Enjoy!
