Shell Painting Beach Art

I had saved an inspiration picture for beach art of these fossil shell prints from the Horchow catalog some years ago   It must be very old, because I don't even see it on line anymore.  Anyhow, I decide to try my own version of the shell painting.   

I  realized very quickly  this painting was taking on its own personality.  Once again, I added Annie Sloan chalk paint at the end and this time I waxed the painting at the very last step.  It really made everything gel and it feels really nice and smooth.
