I collect vintage postcards. This one has an one-cent US stamp on the back:
Last summer I learned to paint a crab and seashells from Fred Lisaius:
I found a photo online for the black starfish. I used photos or real shells for ideas and the rest were imaginary. It was so fun!
Fred is a very talented artist and a wonderful teacher! I recommend you look up his work online. He is teaching an acrylic painting class in July. You can find out more from this link.
I hope to paint more seashells by the seashore (lake) this summer.
