This cold weather is making me long for summer at the beach, so here is a drawing of a lighthouse. Can’t you just smell the salty air and feel the warmth of the sun on your face?

Happy 2012 all! This is my first post of the new year, and I need to “claw” my way back into the routine. So on that note…

I’ve been anxious to add a lobster to my collection of crustacean art ever since my trip along the coast of Maine, past summer. After having done three different kinds of crabs, the lobster deserves some recognition too. I did this painting in watercolor on an oversized pad.

Feel free to check out my art for sale, including sea life, at my store.

Did you notice that this lobster is not red? Lobsters turn red only after they’ve been cooked, ready to be served on a plate.

Here is an easy recipe, if you’re just cooking the tail:

– Chop the tail in half, lengthwise.

– Add butter or peanut oil, sea salt and pepper on the meat.

– Place the two parts meat-side down on the grill for 4 to 5 minutes.

– Then flip them shell-side down for 3 minutes until the meat appears opaque and firm.

– Finally, top with a squeeze of lemon, and garnish with parsley.

Placing the lobster on a bed of angel hair pasta, aglio e olio style would be a nice compliment to the dish.

Yum. I should start a food blog.

My pencil drawing of Pemaquid Light from a recent trip to Maine. It was quite a trek to get to, but very much worth it.
