When I am not diving, I am an artist specializing in wildlife and landscapes scenes. These are just a few of the hundreds of mussel shells I've painted over the years. The pictures don't really do justice to the beautiful colors of the mother-of-pearl. I leave the natural shell colors for the skies and I usually paint local wildlife scenes on the shells. My mother suggested I try painting on the shells back in 1999. At the time, washboards were going for upwards of $7 a pound, so I used the smallest ones to paint. As the demand for my work grew, I began using larger shells and that added to the beauty of the pieces. Now I use only the largest and highest quality shells and mount them on Tennessee River driftwood so that they are a 3-dimensional work of art. Each is hand-signed with my trademark 'Frizz'. To commission one of my shells, just email me at email@example.com. There is a website currently underway for my paintings, it will be called Lost Creek Studios. If you would like to know more about my work, you can find it on deviantArt username frizz-art http://frizz-art.deviantart.com/.
Also available is this limited edition print "Daybreak at Danville". It is a high-quality professional print of the original watercolor by Kenneth Frizzell. Each one is hand-signed and numbered 1/200 and comes with a certificate of authenticity. $30 while they last, it is a low edition of 200 so supplies are limited.
