Fresh Clams

I've painted this before at a smaller size but I wanted to revisit it at a larger scale. This is inspired by a photo of from a 1973 family vacation to the New Jersey shore. Can you believe how inexpensive fresh clams were back then? I actually don't remember doing the actual "clamming" but I do remember these vacations we used to take every year to Jersey shore-before it was made popular by the reality TV show. That's me on the far right with my two sisters next to me, and our family friends (the blondes) round out the group.
