Maine Lobsters

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.
