Altamaha Oyster Beds

Little St. Simons Island, Georgia

Oil on canvas
12 x 18 in. (30.5 x 45.7 cm)

Private collection

This little canvas has been baptized in the Altamaha. At one point, due to equipment failure, the painting lay face down in the pluff mud among the oysters. Some of the mud may still be embedded in the paint, but submersion in the river washed most of it off. I worked on the dampened canvas until dark, and completed it later in the studio. Commissioned.
