All Days | Day by Day | Author Login

Adopt-a-Shell: Give a Former Tiny House, a New Home. Each of these seashells was once home to a little creature, on the shores of, or on the bottom of local coastal waters. Now each of them has been given a fresh coat of interior decoration, with their outsides left mostly untouched, showing the story and beauty of where they have been. If you would like to give one a loving home, or if you know someone who would be thrilled to have them, please: click on your favourite shells and find out their story and adoption details. Proceed portions go to marine education, conservation and research. Postage is free. (Sometimes a few requests for the same shell are received, so I will request payment only from the person who 'got' the shell. Thank you xo)

Day 65 Recline. Inspired by Mt Karioi in Raglan.

65/100 (NZD 27) My biggest lag in this project was from Day 65-67. Happy I kept it up daily leading up to 65 (little happy dance). Many hills and mountain ranges have evoked the images of reclining figures, and I painted this one while feeling really tired and wanting to sleep, lol. Also I think of the days I have spent in Raglan, home of the famous sleeping lady Mt Karioi. 65/100 Recline 66/100 Which way is up 67/100 Girl on snow beach Love this shell, and want to give it a new home?
