I have a rather large collection of sea shells that I use to paint from. This apple snail is a land shell found out in Harnes Marsh in Southwest Florida. I haven't done much shelling there because I was too busy painting the beautiful expansive landscape.
Harnes Marsh is an oasis in the middle of the city of Fort Myers, Florida. Honestly I could paint the landscape there over and over. The landscape is so big and open. The bird sounds are more than captivating.
The snail you see painted here is an apple snail. Evidently there are tons of them there in the marsh.
