This (hopefully) scientifically accurate painting of Pinto Abalone will be auctioned by the Puget Sound Restoration Fund to raise money to help increase abalone populations. The Pinto is the only abalone native to this area and is smaller and bumpier than the more southern varieties. I enjoyed painting the bubble gum pink algae covering the rock and the shells. It really is this color!

  1. Wow! I've never seen anything like that in the wild. Did you work from photos or a real life example? Or just a memory? So very cool. Hope it goes for a fortune, what a worthy cause and so generous of you to donate it.
