PineappShell collection: The paintings in this collection were inspired by two tropical motifs: pineapples and shells... which led me to coining the term "PineappShell." Back in the day, I enjoyed beach combing with friends who are avid shellers. It was during that time that I painted most of the shells in our current collection. (Note: Although pineapples are not native to Hawaii, they are a part of the local plantation history. ) We have other designs in our PineappShell collection- please take a look!
This painting features moonrise shells (the duskier, moodier sister of sunrise shells) and a crown of coral. I also attempted to incorporate geometric shapes. It involved a ruler a frequent erasing! The original elements of this painting was made of watercolor and composed digitally.
