Another Crab Painting

"Crab Feast" by Jane McElvany Coonce

My last post was of my most recent crab painting.  I'm working on a crab series.  I'm trying to get enough crab paintings to do a show somewhere.  This was one of the first ones I did in the series.  The basket was one that my dad used to catch crabs.  He would catch crabs by the bushels. When I set up this still life,  I positioned the crabs on the newspaper, and I loved how it looks like one of the crabs is getting ready to do the crossword puzzle. Of course, you can't have crabs without beer!
