Somedays I feel a little "crabby" ....


I chuckled as I started a recent assignment for my Trip to the Beach class. We were to sketch some "Beach Bugs" and the assignment introduced us to Fiddler Crabs. Sketching this crab sure was a different experience for me ... it was not an image I would have chosen myself. As such, I felt a little out of my comfort zone. But, sometimes it is good to get out of my comfort zone and try something different. The experience taught me about Fiddler Crabs and gave me a chance to think about beach bugs in new ways. It also caused me to think a bit about my own life.....  


I'll admit it ... some days I'm a little "crabby" - when I have an off day or things don't quite go as I would want. Next time I'm having a 'crabby day' I'm sure that my image of this Fiddler Crab will come to mind and remind me to 'step out of my shell' .....

and as expected.... another wonderful piece of work, thanks for sharing. I especially am really impressed with the shadowing underneath the crab. Well done!
