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!
