Blue Crab 1
watercolor on paper
7" x 9"
I was shopping the other day and saw a print that intrigued me. It was a blue crab on a map of the Chesapeake Bay. It got me to thinking...that I would do the same type of painting on a map of Delaware. So here is a preliminary painting of a blue crab. When I was a small girl, my family would go crabbing in and around Bethany Beach, Delaware. We would catch a basket full and then my mom would boil them up and we would have a great crab meal. I don't remember exactly what she would make, but my mom was a wonderful cook. I'll have to ask my sisters or brother if they remember.
Next comes a painting of the small state of Delaware...
