Mossy Lair

"Mossy Lair"
6 X 6
Oil on Hardboard

I found this large snail' shell at the store that I am hoping to sell my art at.  Painters just know when there is something they have to paint.  I was really drawn to this shell.  The next step was to find some moss to place it on.  A walk in the woods found the perfect piece of decaying wood with lush green moss growing on it. So fun to paint new things with new challenges.

Here is how it might look framed.
