Good Company (reworked)

I couldn't keep my paws off of this one..It wasn't I reworked it a little. I like it much better now. The first version is below. Maybe you can see what changes I made.

Good Company

Some use shovels..some use a clam gun. Some carry the lantern while some just do the digging. There's nothing like trying to spot a hole the size of a dime by lamp light.

seals on the beach

 For some reason there have been quite a few seals and sealions beached lately in front of our house. The bald eagles got  one and the gulls got another just this morning. Reminded me that I did this digital image on the computer for a book a while back. It's titled  Seal Pup.

My son the surfer got sorta pumped when he saw this one. He has quite a collection of these..the tools of his trade.


I had panned to take this a little more toward realism but I kinda like it just like this.

Dawn Patrol

more clammers. I don't ususally pay much attention to these scenes when I'm digging..too focused on looking for clam holes. But it is beautiful down there just before the sun comes up isn't it?

After Sunset


I've been trying to get going on a series of clam diggers. So often photos of diggers are either at night (too dark) or during one of our overcast days when everything is monochromatic (gray). I'm lookin' for color. So even though this borders on a sunset with silhouettes I did it for color.

 Just to keep you amused while I'm painting... here are a few digital images I did of our old dog Tex for a children's book
