Joyful Noise

The title pretty much says it all, I think.

Making A Splash

This is a larger version of a mini painting I made awhile back.  It was nice to be working on a decent sized canvas for a change, although I'm not complaining since many of the small ones have sold :}

Cherry Lover

Here's something different.  I was trying to figure out a unique association for these wonderful cherries stolen from my neighbors tree, so I stuck this napkin behind them on the table.  It was fun to paint.

Dancing Feet

Many armed sunflower stars are incredibly colorful, especially when viewed up close.  They have all kinds of pokey parts to keep barnacles and algae from growing on them and the fuzzy stuff on top that makes them feel somewhat slimy is their gills.  They have thousands of tube feet, that suction them along the ocean floor.  They can actually move quite fast and are voracious predators.  A cockle (clam) will flip itself away if you put it in the same tank with a sunstar.
