During a vacation on Cape Cod, my husband and I ordered oysters from Macs Seafood on the the pier in Wellfleet, MA. I had purposely brought my camera to take high res pictures of them. Once I was back home and reviewing the images, none of them excited me until I started to crop in tighter and tighter and this composition struck me as just what I needed to paint a bright, colorful, and modern piece of art. This piece didn't last long at the gallery and within days of its' hanging a collector from Boston snatched it up. At the request of several people who had wanted to purchase the painting but found out it was sold, I created a limited edition print run.
