Sea Shell

Here’s an early watercolor I made of my favorite sea shell, the one that Walter gave me.  I set it in my father’s garden with the petunias and painted it from life —  many, many years ago.  The two curved shapes in the foreground are border stones.  Notice the marigold impersonating a dandelion.  (I know it’s not a dandelion.  My father wouldn’t have permitted it!)
