Cymbiola nobilis is a volute sea snail with beautiful varieties of line patterns evocative of abstract expressionism. I was inspired by the free-flowing and mercurial way the lines travel across the shell. I love how I can almost immediately visualize my artistic rendition of these precious little gems of the sea. Nature never fails to get my creative juices flowing!
I highlighted these natural patterns with an electric blue reminiscent of the sea as the sunlight beams off its surface, and used UV paint to add an extra glow.
Here is my painting - I hope you are as inspired by natural wonders as I am! Have a beautiful day :)

It is so important to protect our natural world by limiting our ecological footprint. It should be each person’s responsibility to do his or her part in preserving our environment for future generations in order to improve the world’s sustainability. Each individual’s understanding concerning the accumulation of their actions can have a large impact on the environmental health of our planet. ♻
So excited for the sunshine!!! I make my best work in the Spring. I love to paint outside. The fresh air, the sounds of nature, observing plants reawakening, It is all so inspiring.
I am looking forward to sharing my *new* Hidden Wonders series of paintings very soon!!

Hi all! Check out Artists & Climate Change blog to get a more in depth understanding about my purpose for creating my Hidden Wonders series:

I was asked to speak about my paintings that have been displayed at their gallery these past few months. I will also be discussing my involvement with the Molluscan Science Foundation, Inc. concerning education of mollusks and coral reef conservation. I will be giving away mini signed prints and heart cockle seashells.

Hi everyone! I am so pleased to be a contributing photographer for The Foundation for Photo/Art in Hospitals.
It brings me great joy to donate my nature photos from my garden back home in Baltimore with others around the world. Currently the photo chosen is my Midnight Marvel hibiscus flowers that are a gorgeous fuchsia color.
I hope these visuals provide peace and comfort to the viewers as they did for me, watching them grow.
As VP of Molluscan Science Foundation, I am delighted to have connected with KEIKO Conservation. We have donated access to our lesson plans and natural seashells.
This donation will help incorporate the protection of coral reef awareness into their school curriculum and will be used at outdoor education outreach events hosted at reef and beach clean-ups in Hawaii at One Ocean Diving & Education. MAHALO!
