Art: Desperately Hungry - Commission by Artist Heather M. Mathieson
This is a commissioned painting, oil on gallery wrapped canvas from a photo taken by my client of a homeless man desperately trying to open a shell (a quahaug, type of clam) to have some food.

Knowing he is a real person was heartbreaking for me to paint him. Homeless people in the city do not have access to natural food as this shell fish.
