"Three Bags Full" by Carol Thompson

"A successful day of digging razor clams finds a group of men returning with 'three bags full'."

Artist comment:  "Clamming season on the coast of the Pacific Northwest brings out the hearty hunters.  In this pastel painting on Canson Mi-teintes textured paper, I depict a trio of gentlemen (perhaps all members of one family) happy and proud to be bringing home their limits of clams.  It was a cold overcast day, so typical of Washington and Oregon.  I chose grey toned paper and sketched the basic composition.  Starting with the sky, I painted the background, carefully rendering the breaking waves, then the ripples lapping against the shiny sand.  Lastly I put in the figures and their reflections with clam guns and bags full of clams.  A few piles of overturned sand completes the 'story'.  'yessir, yessir, three bags full'."
