She Sells Seashells, Oil Still Life by Linda McCoy

This old bowl/dish was a find in an antique store. It is covered with patina and remains a mystery metal. The outside is a burnished brown and the screws that hold the handles on are worn. I wonder about it. It's the second time I've painted it, it's history remains a secret. The seashells were just purchased in a bag of mixed shells and I've been meaning to get to them.
It rained today, no bright light. I like chromatic greys of this piece, and mixed them using permanent rose with a little Winsor Green and white. A quiet painting.
6"X6" oil on gallery wrapped stretched canvas. $100.00. If you are interested in purchasing, please email me at
