Art: Clamming Weather by Artist Carol Thompson

"Any kind of weather is clamming weather, rain or shine."

Artist comment:  "When the tide is low, on a beautiful afternoon, the beaches of the Northwest coast begin to fill up with people carrying shovels, buckets, nets and clam guns.  This pastel painting on Canson Mi-Teintes paper is one such scene.  I was captivated by the beautiful thunderhead building out over the sea.  The clam diggers are miniaturized by the huge sky.  I painted a large swath of sand and wet beach.  Then I painted the people as I remembered them (and from my own digging experience).  I added a few dark strips of wet sand and then the reflections."
