"A Good Day For Clamming" by Carol Thompson

"The sun is shining.  The tide is low.  The chill is gone from the air.  It's 'a good day for clamming'."

Artist comment:  "For years I have been an avid clam digger.  Since art is my career, it is a natural consequence that I should paint the past time of clam digging.  I chose pastel on Canson Mi-Teintes textured paper for this scene.  I sketched the positioning of the figures and the ocean waves.  Then, beginning at the top, I painted the ocean and sandy beach with it's pools of trapped water.  I painted the figures from left to right focusing on the 'typical' poses and colorful garb.  I then put in the 'stacks' of sand on the beach, so indicative of the quest for clams."
