Art: It's A Family Thing by Artist Carol Thompson

"When clamming season is here it's a family thing to go down to the beach and enjoy digging at the ocean shore."

Artist comment:  "No matter the weather, it is a delight to see hardy clam diggers seeking the elusive mollusks.  Here on Canson Mi-Teintes textured paper, I portray that moment in time.  I sketched the scene with a neutral color on grey toned paper, then with a soft grey, I painted the sky, troughs, and a light swath of color across the sand.  Next I rendered the ocean waves with their foam patterns.  Finally I painted the figures.  I put in a few dark lumps of sand to show where previous digs were.  The best part was to do the colorful figures in typical poses."
