Abalone Shells

In support of a local restoration project, I painted these abalone shells found in the Pacific Northwest. Shining with pearly ocean color make these shells one of my favorite. For more information please visit the Alternate Website link.

Beautifully done Amy. I couldn't tell from the thumbnail if it was a painting or photograph. You have indeed captured the distinctive beauty of the inside of this shell. Very nicely done.

Artist Reply: Thanks Mike! Yep, the abalones are in oil paint. You are very talented with your photography work, I can't wait to see more.
