WIP III - Seashell

Well I still haven't taken my computer in to the shop but my computer smart sister made some suggestions over the phone which have seemed to help quite a bit. I am glad that someone in the family has a computer brain. 
I am still working on the seashell but progress is slow.  It seems that the colder the weather gets, the slower I work.

Vicki, this is looking so soft and so lovely. Take your time, go slow. I know it's going to be a winner. Hard to paint something warm when you're cold? I know!!! You'd think you'd want to paint warm scenes to warm up but somehow it's just hard to get into it.

One does not have to work fast when one works so well! This is so delicately beautiful...Do take your time and we will wait patiently to see the rest of this beauty emerge.

Thanks so much Rhonda and Christiane for your encouragement. I will just relax and take my time.

Love this. The little edge of breaking waves is perfect & interesting. The bg colors are wonderful. Love the colors you have in the shell. Beautiful and sensitively painted. Already it looks like a giant Alaskan king crab claw. Is that what it is or do I need to see it all finished? Will check back when you post further completions. Look forward to seeing it completed.

Thanks Ruth! It is nothing as exciting as a crab claw. Just a shell and the reflections on the beach. I bet you can do those poured paintings and pick out wonderful shapes and images.
