Sea Shell Series

This series of paintings was created as a result of a class-Painting on Fabric that I took with another calligrapher, Lisa Engelbrecht. In the class, I finished a small picture with a quote from the book, Gift From the Sea and added three sea shells, sewing them on the fabric. Then I started experimenting on watercolor paper and liked the results. Many of them also have the sewn on shells.

The size is 8x8 and I usually frame them in white frames. The lettering is usually blue or blue-greens with a white mat over blue or blue-green.
