Here I am, back from some traveling and from some time off in Mauritius. First of all I would like to thank you for still visiting my blog even if I'm "out" and thanks to my new visitors for their interest.
I have drawn only a little while away, (I also felt the need to rest even that part of my brain, he he), but I got a few drawings coming up...
I spent quite a lot of time snorkeling and searching for seashells. Other times when snorkeling I didn't see them, but now I know "how to look", and I finally there are plenty. They where not always clean or empty, but once in a while the luck was with me and I found a few really nice shells.
Here we got Mr. "Bernard l'Hermite" as we call them in France. Funny crabs in shells as I guess everyone has seen some time. This one was particularly cute, as he looked like wearing an helmut and I had an enjoyable moment drawing his "portrait".
The last picture shows a beautiful seashell with a crab too, that I found with my son Alix when snorkeling behind the coral reef. As we refuse to kill alive shells or shells with crabs we thought we might try to get the crab out of there somehow. Without any suffering of course! So, without too much hope, we put him in a bowl with sea water, sand and another empty shell, to see if he would fancy a new "home". He did!! A few moments later he was installed and ready to go back into the sea!
