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!!!!Pin It
