Blue Claw, Red Claw This painting was inspired by a day spent on Long Island's South Shore Crabbing with my daughters, a pastime I enjoyed when I was young.  The blue claw crab in net struggles to free himself from the tangles of line, flailing with one claw while holding onto his mate with the other.

Growing up on Long Island many lazy days were spent at the beach.  
This scene, inspired by a recent trip to the Hamptons, shows a sunbather 
distracted by the surf having her lunch stolen by a wily seagull 

I remember long days watching the waves crash against the shore,
the smell of the salt and the sea, the gulls cry and the sun
warming my check while I buried my feet in the sand.
