Default Chambered Nautilus; painting for a diver

A diver friend commissioned this little painting of a chambered nautilus (Nautilus pompilius) to "contemplate the deep" - these guys live at a depth of 1,000 feet, but can withstand 2,000 feet without imploding - watercolor underpainting, acrylic overpainting on an Ampersand Claybord panel, 8x10"; simple handmade hardwood frame:



Happy Thursday to all - Bob
(don't try 2,000 foot depth at home)
