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.

Periwinkle, in zoology, any small marine snail belonging to the family Littorinidae (class Gastropoda, phylum Mollusca). Periwinkles are widely distributed shore (littoral) snails, chiefly herbivorous, usually found on rocks, stones, or pilings between high- and low-tide marks; a few are found on mud flats.  (Source-Encyclopedia Brittanica)
