Evidently there's a whole bunch of stuff going on under the sea -- beautiful corals, anemones, sea fans, kelp, sea stars -- and that's just on one rock!

Here on our little island we discover all kinds of sealife when the sun and moon pull the saltwater to the other side of the globe, giving us those wonderful low tides. Last summer during a minus four foot tide I discovered critters I hadn't seen before; my neighbor even found a baby octopus. A prize find for me was brittle sea star, the only one I've ever seen.

In my mind the sea creatures are partying when we're not looking, and so here they are in a festive mood. The 20"x20"x5" handpainted pillow displays images of our ubiquitous Ochre Sea Star and gorgeous finger coral, which only grows in warm climates. The colors are warm and summery, pretty much like you find in orange and mango sherbet or gelato. Mmmmmmm . . . gelato . . .

Looks pretty great with other designs from this shop, like the coral fragments pillow shown in the first photo and the "Two Corals" in the last. Designed, painted, sewn, stuffed, signed and copyrighted by the artist on a lovely little island north of Seattle. Paint is mixed on the spot; please bear this in mind if ordering multiples so that colors will be from the same lot. Thank you for looking!
