Still Life with Shells

Shells can be beautiful, colorful, and exotic, and they offer us a tangible link to our ancestral home; the ocean. Artists have seen the intrigue and power of shells since the beginning of art, and they feature prominently in a great many still life paintings. Photographic still life falls outside the scope of this board. It includes paintings only.
