Oyster Roasts and a Paint Brush
Jan 23, 2022
I love to paint oysters. About a half dozen from our Christmas bushel made it to the canvas this year. Growing up on a little barrier island along the coast of Charleston, South Carolina, I have been to my fair share of oyster roasts. Crisp air and steaming oysters smell so good. The southern tradition includes friends crowding around the fire and raising their voices in laughter at old familiar tales. This Christmas we had a beautiful bushel of oysters. Here’s to a good season. Get you some! : )
While not in the studio, I usually have a sketch bag full of watercolor supplies. Here is a little oyster I painted on Christmas Eve. But of course, some made it to the easel this year. Below is a half-dozen single selects.
Interested in going to an oyster roast? Here’s a list to 5 Annual roasts you may enjoy:
