"Oystercatcher's Garden" Original 24x36 Acrylic Painting



Spent the day painting away. I finished up my tide pool commission piece titled "Oystercatcher's Garden" It is a 24x36 acrylic on gallery wrapped canvas. It was fun to do all of the little tide pool creatures as well as the octopus (always my favorite) and oyster catcher. This will be traveling to its new home in Seattle tomorrow!

I played in California tide pools as a little girl. What you have painted here is what I have seen once or actually many times through my 7 year old eyes. Never was I afraid to touch what seemed like millions of living creatures that revealed themselves to me as the saltwater would wash back and leave me a clear bath to spend with my friends for the day ~ Beautiful painting Melissa. Thank you for a glimpse back in my time ~
