Here is the shark eye shells that are part of a 3 image piece that I'm working on for the aquarium show. Shark Eyes are found in shallow sandy flats and drill through through prey's shell for food. The holes that they drill have beveled edges. I have picked up many of these over the years. The largest one I have is about 2 1/2 inches in diameter.

These are venus clam, a pair. The real shells are much, much smaller than this work. They are only about an inch across. I really, really, underestimated how hard getting the "basketweave" pattern on these shells would be.

I will be adding these to my account so that will be available for prints.

Remembering Ziggy

My cat of 15 years crossed over to be with his brothers this morning. He was a wonderful friend and I will miss him dearly. He has such spunk. He was truly my furry four-legged child.

A small work, only 7 x 5 inches. It's the first of three shell works that are going into a frame and mat set designed to hold multiple photos.

This is a welk shell, native to NC. I found the shell some years ago.

This is Prismacolor pencils on navy blue Fabriano pastel paper. I've had this paper for several years and I think that the color has probably been discontinued by now.
