Got this little package of complimentary mints on a return flight from Australia. Small and about the size of my thumb. The actual mints were pea sized. I eat most of them during this painting. A bit hard on the teeth.
This shell is only about eight inches in length and has many interesting facets. When I did my first painting of this shell it was quite a bit to chew on in trying to capture all of its nuances. This time around I was a little more comfortable and things did seemed to flow more easily.
