One Fish, Two Fish, Red Shrimp, Blue...Art

Just wanted to share the shrimp (and fish) ornaments (and necklaces) I've been inspired to paint. I like working on natural materials. I hand pick and squirrel away shells, rocks, wood, bones, etc. Hanger on blue shrimp (oyster?) shell is 4lb Stren Clear Blue fishing line.




It's hard to get shrimp life-sized, so some are a tad bigger than life. My cat wouldn't canny to me plucking out a few whiskers, and I'm not giving up any eyelashes to make a smaller brush

Thank y'all!
Clue you in on a secret. I have been painting shrimp because I can't keep them alive no matter how hard I try. (except bamboo shrimp)
