Return to shells



Here are three more of the quick shell paintings I did earlier in the week. You can see the others on yesterdays post. You know, when I was a little girl I used to LOVE collecting shells. My mum would always take a plastic bag when we went to the beach so I could collect lots. I had shoe boxes upon shoe boxes full. I don't have those shoeboxes anymore but my own collection of shells is growing. I'm hoping to use some to make more jewellery. I like returning to old ideas. Leaving an idea then coming back to it later, returning to it again and again. Returning to shells again and again throughout my life.
