The shrimp are running in our river right now. I can go out my front door at high tide and get over 30 in a single cast of the net! That will never cease to amaze me. We've been enjoying many shrimp meals, esp. a hot Thai soup I make that uses the heads to make the broth. The shrimp have to be super fresh and they are and its delicious… they are beautiful creatures too. Michael and I were admiring them and I said "What a thing of beauty." His reply: "Why don't you paint it?" Why not indeed… so I thought it might be fun to make it REALLY BIG too - so here is my 4 x 5 FOOT painting of a shrimp. I'm taking it in to Spouter's Restaurant next week for them to display. Go take a look if you're in Beaufort. Great fun. I have to remember how much I enjoy painting BIG. Quite liberating.
By the way, have you ever seen shrimp swim? Watch here.
