Farnhams Famous Clams - Small Acrylic Painting of Iconic Clam Shack

JT Farnhams
6 x 6 inches
acrylic on cradled panel

Another iconic clam shack on the North Shore of Massachusetts. This one is in Essex - home to a lot of clams! I've driven by many times, however, this is one clam shack I haven't actually eaten at yet. Maybe next summer!

This piece was available at Pop Gallery in Gloucester, Massachusetts, but sold very quickly. I am guessing that there will be more Farnham's paintings coming up soon since it is a favorite place of many people. Let me know if you are interested in a piece of Cape Ann summer for your own!

Spuds found a new home!

Spuds found a new home!

"Spuds Surrenders" was one of a number of my original paintings that sold this past weekend at the Haverhill Arts Association's Annual Art Festival. Lots of prints - and new calendars sold as well! A big thanks to everyone who came out and made it such a fun day.

Did you miss out on the Art Festival? I also be selling my work this weekend (September 17th) at the Boxford Apple Festival. And next Saturday, at the Haverhill Art Market. Feel free to contact me if you want more information!

Loved this classic VW beetle! Fun shapes and reflections - and a great color to work with. I have been enjoying going to car shows and cruise nights - more car paintings will probably be in the future.

Clam Box - Small Acrylic Painting of New England Clam Shack

Clam Box
(Ipswich, Massachusetts)
7 x 5 inches
acrylic on cradled panel

One of my favorite clam shacks to paint - and not a bad place to get fried clams, either ;-)

Just a reminder - I am happy to paint custom versions of these little paintings if you want a different size, or perhaps a painting of YOUR favorite clam shack!

Cupcake #4 - Food Art Still Life Painting by Debbie Shirley

Cupcake #4
4 x 4 inches
acrylic on mdf panel

Just because it looks cute with the last one - thought it would make a good display to have a pair (and they are fun to paint too!) I will have this cupcake pair, along with cupcake notecards - and lots of other fu things - at the Haverhill Art Market this weekend, Saturday July 16, 12-5pm at 90 Washington Street in Haverhill. I will be working on a small sign painting during the Market and selling some of my paintings and prints. Hope you can stop by if you are local!
