Capturing the beauty of Wellfleet Oyster Shells

Capturing the beauty of Wellfleet Oyster Shells

Collectible remembrance oil paintings capturing the unique beauty of each oyster shell, with its smooth sheen and rough, craggy edge. Like the oyster shell itself, each painting shows individuality with a dream-like palette. Only painted from an existing shell posing for its portrait, some with pearls, some in the shape of shucker's valentine heart. Featured image shows several sizes available and orders can be placed for multiples and oversize.

Orders can be placed on line from the Just Oysters Collection or by contacting me.
