Crab Floats & Geraniums
I set up this “stuff” on the deck outside my gallery to be able to paint and visit with people coming and going during the 2015 “Plein Air & More” event in Cannon Beach. The geraniums were from our front porch at home and the floats from my collection of beach finds over the decades. It was a beautiful weekend and I was thrilled to complete this oil and talk to people at the same time which can be a challenge.

Crab Floats on a Limb
Most people who love the ocean have a little beach comber in them so finding treasures at the edge of the sea is just a part of life. Floats like these are used by Crabbers to locate the “pot” that sits on the bottom of the ocean and is attached to the surface by a long line of nylon rope. They simply pull the crab pot to the surface and sort out the “keepers”, re bait the pot and overboard it goes. When I find a float laying on the beach my criteria for adding it to my collection (I have more than enough by the way) is it must be intact, still have the line attached and have “soul”, if you will, as evidence of the life its lived.
