Beach Sandstone with Piddock Burrows

Beach Sandstone with Piddock Burrows


This is a print of the original watercolor painting, within a series called Giologica. The print is scrupulously perfected and produced on the finest artist grade Moab Entrada cotton paper. 

A find along the coast north of Santa Barbara. This is a sight-size still life of the specimen (roughly 4.5x4.5"). There are traces of other smaller worm shells within. The rock is a cold bluish grey on the outside, textured; with smooth yellowed hues on the inside. A densely populated piddock area created a natural arch in the rock. This specimen must have been home to a nice population of piddock of varying maturity. As the rock came loose and was tossed by the waves and washed ashore, the brittle piddock shells were flushed out, leaving only their smooth round burrows. 

11x14in/28x35.5cm professional archival print, on 300 gsm 100% cotton fine art paper. Print date and artist initials on back. Optional artist handmade oak frame is about 12x15in/30.5x38cm, mounted with archival mat and backboard.
