Blue Crab with Periwinkle is a watercolor painting with a viewpoint near the level of the water. A Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab, at the surface, looks up while grasping a periwinkle.
Other periwinkles are attached to the chartreuse green marsh grass.
This painting is light in feel, and very original in style. Ryon uses chartreuse green with a punch of turquoise in painting this stunning watercolor. It would be wonderful framed in a turquoise blue frame, or with an under mat of turquoise. This 14" x 20" watercolor is perfect for a beach house or river cottage. Framed with a mat, the size could be increased to 20"W x 26"H.
Framing options are shown below. Framing can be arranged for you at an additional cost. Please inquire if interested.
