This past Sunday my seascape “Crab’n On the Jetty” oil painting was featured in the iTowns section of the Hartford Courant newspaper. The painting is of kids fishing for crabs at the beach. I enjoy painting beach scenes and including children playing along the shore is one of my favorite subjects. My latest painting of a similar subject is in my previous post of two girls playing at the beach and you can scroll down to read that article.
