I found this photo of a pile of craw-daddys in a book in New Orleans when I was staying at the Monteleone Hotel and loved the way they were lying there looking at the camera. The photo was fantastic in and of itself, but I wanted to translate it into paint showing the details that photo held in the most-focused areas. So you will see the texture of the claws and the dimensional eyeballs in this. It was fun to do! As my student, Sarah, could attest, I started this very haphazardly and was glad that she wasn't really following along, but it finally came to life. We laughed about it.
