You know, I don't even LIKE clams. To eat, that is. I have no opinion of clams personally. But at our Labor Day Clamboil last year I took a few out and positioned them on the counter and took their pictures, and in looking at the images this week I was intrigued by the subtle colors and the glistening of the neck things. And then the shapes grew on me and I started drawing clams... after I did this I took out a bigger canvas, 14 x 18 - and sketched on it, but it was not big enough. So I grabbed a 16 x 20, but once again... not big enough. I think I finally settled on a 20 x 24 in canvas - let's see how that goes!
