Treasures of the Sea

"Tesori del mare"  
(Treasures of the Sea)

8" x 10" (20.3 cm x 25.4 cm)   
Acrylic on canvas pad

I can’t believe it has been so long since when I started this painting!  I posted a work in progress photo on 14 April and then I never really went back to it.
The funny thing is that my children thought it was just perfect as soon as I started putting some color on the hands and shells.  They are my best fans: they think everything I do is sooo beautiful.  Got to love children!  And got to wish they never stop looking at mommy that way! Including the fact that they think I'm "The best cook in the whole wide world".


  1. Beautiful seashells! I love "this treasure" placed in the hands: a gift from the sea for another donation takes place ... Children are often right! I recognize in them my own ... Robie Bravo!

  2. Yes, I like to trust children's feelings and opinions, because they are often right. And I love how they speak their honest feelings. Maybe the world would be a better place if we could all be like children (without the "getting offended by the truth" part). ;)
    Thanks for the nice comment. :)
