I love to paint these 5 x 7 canvas panels!  So much can be packed into a small space.  In this painting I have depicted knobbed whelk, cerith snail, moon snails, Lewis moon snail, Colorful Atlantic Moon Snail and the Common Periwinkle.   Here’s another fact about sea snails!  They are all hermaphrodites!  They are also predatory and carnivorous.  Some whelks stick a part of their shells between the two sides of an oyster so that it cannot close and then they eat them by sucking out the meat with their hollow proboscis.

Zinnia Joy


I have so enjoyed my small zinnia garden in a corner of our front yard!  I planted a small package of mixed zinnias  last year and decided to paint these orange ones which were the last ones blooming before frost.  It is too early for zinnias this year, but I do hope to have them!  This painting is on stretched canvas and is 10 x 8.  Click here for further information.
