Shell Game

Photobucket

This is 9x9"  and it seemed like a good subject to close out the summer. The shell is old - my Aunt Katherine found it  - when? the 30's? the 40s? I remember playing with it when I was little and it has been far inland, on the bookshelf in my house for many years. Some things just seem to last and last. The painting is at the Peninsula Art Academy now.

I just love hearing the story behind a painting, Kathleen. How cool that this shell is from your aunt! You did a beautiful job capturing this shape too!
