Independence Day Lobster, 6x6 Inches, Original Acrylic Painting

SOLD


I hope you had a wonderful 4th of July!  While we were all happily celebrating the birth of our country,  this lobster and 2 of his friends were steaming, literally.  At the end of the day my husband and Paco and I sat on the front porch and watched nine - count 'em - NINE fireworks displays.  Paco was a real trooper, except when (not in the 9) our neighbor 2 doors down started his own display - right over the road (a few drivers freaked a bit).  Then neighbors 3 houses behind us on the hill started theirs - and it truly felt like we were being bombed!  One of my cats got out and I was extremely worried he would just run and run into the woods, but I did get him in.  

I had such fun with this lobster!  I don't eat them, I just paint them.  He sat on a platter suspended over an ice-filled roasting dish, staying cool, as he will be lobster salad on Friday!    And no clam paintings (sorry, Frank!) because Tim threw them ALL into the pot before I could snatch some!  Anyway, this is technically Mixed Media because I accidently mixed some white oil paint in the turquoise
paint for the platter!!!!

  2. Just saw a kitchen done in these two colors on The Next Design Star. I found myself thinking what an excellent piece this would be for that room. And the retro 1950's type of colors are just gorgeous.

  4. Love this! The color combinations are great! The touches of ultramarine ? really add to the feel. I didn't know one could get so luscious with acrylics...maybe it was that touch of oil :-)
