A ghost crab. Never cared for them much. Not to say that as one of God's creatures they are not beautiful, but they eat baby seaturtles when they hatch. Ghost crabs dig burrows near the nest and pull the turtles back down to their larder. Is there a more gruesome vision? Eaten alive by a ghost. They can hear the sounds of baby turtles moving under the sand and line up around a "boil". A boil is the action or event when baby sea turtles all hatch and scramble out of the nest and head to the claws of a ghost crabs or the open water along the outer banks of North Carolina.
I have done more crab paintings than probably any other subject. I have never counted them. I would guess the number of paintings I have created so far is just below 600. I have probably painted 70 or more blue crabs. I am a bit worried about over saturating the crab painting market. Is there a way of knowing other than sales?
Do you have an opinion about oversaturation of painting types or subjects?
Can I get a witness?
When I finish this painting, I will give you the answer. stay tuned for all this..........fun. waiting. waiting.waiting.
Times up. The correct answer is 101. Moving on.

This is sort of what my ancient cat "Prissie" looks like. She is 18 years old. yes. 18. She sleeps all the time and is missing a lot of teeth. When she awakes and looks at me with tired eyes, I answer "soon". Oil on canvas 5"X7" This painting is sold.
This is an oceanfront house in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina. I have always liked the way it looked in the landscape and elements of architecture. It is certainly random in the placement of elements and but maybe that's why I have always liked it.
