I’ve completed seven oyster portraits. Six are on exhibit at the State of the Art Gallery in Ithaca until the end of May. For those of you who, after having enjoyed eating oysters, place them back on the iced plate, outer shell up: take a close look at those shells. They have unexpected color and a sculptural beauty that is usually overlooked.
Perhaps seeing my pastel “paintings” will give an additional aspect of appreciation for these delicious mollusks. See “Consider the Oyster.”
