I am working on a series of small oil paintings. "Contemplations" is what I am going to call this series. The photograph below is an 8"x10" painting of a rather large moon snail shell that I found on Masonboro Island near Wrightsville Beach, NC. This shell feels so lovely in the palm of my hand! I will be sure to post the finished painting once it is complete.

Contemplation: Small Nest
oil on canvas, 8"x10"
if you are interested in purchasing
This little oil painting, one of the first of my "Contemplations" series, is a study of the beautiful details that are found in small, unassuming objects. I found this wonderfully shaped bird's nest, measuring only about 4" in diameter, along a shady path in the mountains in western North Carolina. It had blown out of a tree.
