I love to paint in Maine and there's no subject for a painting that interests me more than lobsters. The painting of a live lobster has to be a quick one -- both because the lobster needs to either be cooled off or cooked and because they like to move. As models go, they are a steal at $3.50/pound and they hold that "cooked" pose until hunger strikes. This year, I painted lobsters with painter friends who are used to taking a bit more time and exercising a bit more control in painting -- and their paintings were fantastic. Here's mine.
