A Clam and a Whelk mixed media drawing

These painting/drawings came about from a wish to be on the beach. I have a big collection of shells that I sometimes use with children, for drawing from. They get so excited and passionate about them, holding them, listening to the big ones and looking them up in the identifier book. I am convinced that holding shells is some of the best available tactile therapy there is. Several of my shells have pencil smudges on them.

These 8" square mixed media paintings on canvas. SOLD
