I’ve been thinking about doing this painting ever since I took the shell from its home. I was thinking of making it really big. (I got a big canvas the other day and I am really excited to see what I end up putting on it.) I like it this size, too. I think it’s a nice size. Not too grandiose. Lately, I’ve been making postcards and find it to be a very comfortable size to really hold and shift around in one’s hands.
