My boyfriend found a shell on the beach Saturday and gave it to me. It was beautifully textured and not at all like the other shells in Maine. It may have fallen off of someone's purse or hat, but it was beautiful and thus we kept it. I couldn't get the texture of the shell quite right. Plan to try drawing or painting that shell again with less interpretive colours.
