Daily Painting, Shell Still Life, "Queen Conch" by Carol Schiff, 8x10" Oil SOLD

I found this Queen Conch shell on the beach during a trip to the Abaco Islands.  The Abaco Islands are a small, but beautiful chain of quaint islands off the shore of Florida.  Easy to travel to and with all beautiful unspoiled beaches, great fishing and diving and just plain relaxing.  They are not on the tourist route, which is an added bonus.

Purchase here
SOLD
I placed it in an east facing window one morning, and got a remarkable glow as the sun shone through the shell.  It seemed to be on fire and I tried to capture that beauty here.

Maybe not quite as nice as a trip to the islands, but a close second!   Every time I see it, I can feel sand between my toes.

Good heavens - this glows in a really amazing way. How did you do that? Congratulations on achieving it, Carol.

I love the balance of warm and cool colors and think it was a neat idea showing it with the fish.
