We had lobster Sunday to celebrate my daughter's boyfriend's birthday. It was a really nice day, and, chicken-heart that I am, I left the actual COOKING of the beasts to my husband. I ventured into the kitchen right after they went 'in', and heard a bit of knocking on the pan - I ran out of the kitchen faster than I thought I was capable! They cooked one for me to paint, as I don't eat them, and then he became part of a pasta dish. I had a lot of fun with the drawing of the lobster, and then I just had a blast putting brushloads of green paint on, in slightly different shades, for the background. I love my life!
My husband says I always seem to paint lobsters looking angry - now I ask you.. have you ever seen a HAPPY looking lobster after he's been cooked????
He's wonderful Kelley, I love your brushwork. To me he seems to be saying "really?".ReplyDelete
lol! Love this post and love the painting, sounds like you do indeed have a great life. :))))ReplyDelete
I'd recognize him anywhere, Kelley. Is he a Maine lobstah? :)ReplyDelete
love the way you positioned this guy! great job!ReplyDelete
Is he looking at me?ReplyDelete
Great brushwork love the colors.
GREAT brushwork! Love all of those oranges and the way you scratched in the "feelers". Love that square textured green too...the perfect color with that vivid orange!ReplyDelete
this critter is fairly jumping off the canvas!!! beautifully done, so much said in a small format! i run screaming from the kitchen while the deed is being done as well. but i foolishly spend a few minutes before hand speaking to it and telling it how sorry i am for it's coming demise. however, i am ashamed to say, i have no trouble eating them. excellent painting!ReplyDelete
Not that I have many opportunities to eat lobster, but after reading your post I may never eat one again! lol You are too funny. I cried one time when I caught a little tiny fish and couldnt' get the hook out of his mouth! Great painting!!!ReplyDelete
Kelley..Love this painting..well done. You are SO funnyReplyDelete
The lobster looks like he was challenging to paint him. Well, you showed him a thing or too. Well done. Love the color palette.ReplyDelete
I love this lobster, beautiful lights and darks! Wonderful colors! By the way, he looks fierce!ReplyDelete
He certainly doesn't look happy, but the painting is. Love the colors.ReplyDelete
Awesome.....!!! love the perspective and colors!ReplyDelete
I really like all the brushwork on this one. Colors are dynamic. Yes, he looks a big concerned?... Tim- you gotta understand:) I am with you Kell, it is like eating lamb:(ReplyDelete
I'm glad I'm not the only one taking pics of my dinner. Love the juicy chunks of paint to help that gorgeous lobster pop from the canvas!ReplyDelete
I think that this guy looks a little confused!ReplyDelete
What a cute lobster! Love the whiskers!ReplyDelete
This lobstah is just too cool! I am so jealous that you get those fresh there. What a treat!ReplyDelete
Love the lobster! I can't eat them either. It's a little too hands on for me!!ReplyDelete
