Oil paintings....creatures and critters...Heron, Redfish, Crabs, Shrimp


These are some of the creature paintings I have done this spring.  The heron was a daily visitor during our vacation on Dauphin Island last summer.  He was quite a friendly fellow and posed on numerous occasions. 
The redfish was caught by us on our deep sea fishing trip during the same vacation.  He is sort of a combination of the real thing and my own vision of him. 
The crabs are known as "The Crabby Couple II"....the original crabby couple live in Shreveport and they really aren't so crabby.
The shrimp is part of an ongoing series of square paintings of shrimp, crabs, oysters and crawfish.  Cousins of this guy are scattered around all over the southeast.
