"Crab Season"

"Crab Season" 16x20 Oil on Canvas, 2009

Growing up on the Gulf Coast, part of summer vacation was getting to eat fresh seafood because it was shrimp and crab season. Fried, boiled or in seafood gumbo this is by far my favorite summer food. So here is my first impressionistic painting of crabs and shrimp. Of course it had to be very colorful and I put them in the sea just before the shrimp nets gather them up. Hope you like it.
