Steamed Clam by Kristine Kainer

Oil on Belgian Linen Panel (museum grade)

I enjoy painting, then eating, my models.  Let's be honest, though--shellfish should not sit under the lights in an art studio for ANY length of time if the goal is to serve it for dinner (or a snack).  Needless to say, this was painted from a photo I took of the subject--in my kitchen--on my plate, immediately after removing it from the steamer.   Only seconds passed before it was eagerly eaten.  It was scrumptious!
