Hand Painted Shells

I recently relocated close to the shore in New Jersey. It has been a wonderful experience to be very close to sea since I find many treasures that wash up shore during my long walks with my pup, Sofi. Most of my findings include slipper shells, bay scallops, moon snails, oysters, blue mussels and if I am really lucky sand dollars. However, my main treasure is focused on  finding surf clams. My collection is growing larger and larger everyday. Last week I was running low on watercolor paper so I decided to make use of what I had at hand; surf clams. I decided to paint on them. I have a total of 7 already and plan on painting many more! I also think that they would make excellent unique Christmas gifts for friends and family.

They are posted on my Etsy shop at this link https://www.etsy.com/shop/AngyPaints?ref=pr_shop_more. Check them out before the go fast! 😀
