Spirit of the Gulf
This is my contribution to the Spirit of the Gulf Challenge, a little hermit crab. I haven't lived here long enough to appreciate The Gulf, but I know what kind of impact the recent crisis is causing to the marine life there. My wife had a hermit crab once named Coconut she bought from Gulf Shores. Eventhough small, but he has helped me to relate and appreciate what's wonderful and beautiful there.
Suzanne McDermott challenged "every artist who receives this invitation to make one drawing, painting, collage — or to use whatever medium you work in — to create a piece of beauty with love and gratitude to honor some scene or living being in the Gulf. Thank you to Dan Kent for inviting me to participate in this challenge, and thank you all for your kind comments in my previous post.
Just an update from my side, I went to Atlanta for a 4-day vacation with my wife and her friend Lindsay last week. I was fortunate to be able to visit the Georgia Aquarium, the Coca-Cola Factory, the CNN Studio, and the Museum of Natural History. That's why I couldn't find the time to day because I was overly distracted and was having too much fun ^^
I know it's been long due, the Printing shop in Breaux Bridge is still "working" on getting the postcard printed. At the same time they're probably printing something else that I've been working on too. I shall reveal them soon enough when the time is right. Remember that I haven't been posting not because I haven't been drawing ;)
