Some of you may already know about the poem “What Do You Do With Sea Shells”by Lola B. Minard. Reading it for the first time the words stuck in my mind and they were NOT about to leave until I did something about them, so I did.
I created the scene the words painted in a shadow box pictured here and it took first place in the Sanibel Show and the poem also ended up on the Martha Stewart Show.
I am grateful for all of you who have commented on it and to those of you who have asked what I intend to do with the original creation, at this point I will have it on display at the Philly Show this coming October. Also many of you have asked about prints and I have had some made up in the form of blank note cards available at http://www.etsy.com/?gclid=CP-Q1OT3868CFQLktgodLjuPWA
