Sanibel Sea Shells

'Treasures of the Day' 14x11 pastel
Every once in awhile I like to focus in on something and paint a close up. Shells are one of my favorite subjects. I found these shells on one of my morning beach walks on Sanibel Island a couple of summers ago. I need to go back...it's been too long!
