We Can See Right Through You, 5x7

I hope you can tell the background is metallic gold. I wish you could see it in person, the gold makes it quite striking.
I think of the two haughty seashells looking at the jellyfish and accusing him of being spineless and transparent. It's a challenge painting a jellyfish, it's like a drop of water. This was late afternoon, and I loved the teardrop shadow cast by the middle shell. It was so hot, I thought maybe I would be cooler walking this morning and finding objects. Wrong. I have decided there is no "cooler." The heat is unbearable right now.
