Shell frosting

Shell frosting

I am playing with these images (this one, and the two below), Picasa-style. The shell paintings themselves are luminescent pearl and soft thalo gold set against bone white stone. When my photography skills catch up to my painting abilities, I will show you how they really look. The website for Bedrock Art is scheduled for grand opening in three weeks. Stay tuned!

  1. Hello Nancy, we met yesterday at Gananoque’s gallery. It was a pleasure. I’m happy to have found this site of yours! Nice work. The other fossil location I told you about, in BC, is called the Burgess Shale. The ROM in Toronto has a nice website about it: As for Miguasha, here are two sites: and Here is an address where you can learn a bit about me, though it’s not very up-to-date (unfortunately this trio doesn’t exist anymore): I hope to stop by in the Thousand Islands again this summer. Au plaisir. Paul

    • Paul, thanks so much! This is wonderful information to have. I’m sorry to hear the trio doesn’t exist any more — it must have been very special. Please do come again to the Thousand Islands. It was lovely to meet you both. Nancy
