                   "Larry Lobster Goes Out On A Date"  by Carol Jessen, Maine Artist

In this painting of lobsters, I wanted warm colors, especially red, to dominate.  But a warm themed painting needs a bit of cool colors to provide some relief.  So, in the first wash underpainting, I splashed in some blue.  This takes some courage!  Don't let the white of the paper fool you.  Be bold!

I titled the painting "Larry Lobster Goes Out On A Date".  Just having some fun with this one!
