Three Shells

Three Shells
6 x 6
Oil on hardboard
I have had this box of seashells on my still life objects shelf for over a year.  I am just now playing with how I might paint them.  This one was done in a loose fashion with thick paint in some places.  It is one of those pieces that are best enjoyed standing a few feet away to get the full effect.  Standing too close results in thinking it is just a "hot mess".  I think I will continue to play with the shells with different compositions.

Here is how it might look framed
