Mystery shells

Today I headed back to the Beaty Museum at UBC to do some drawing. It’s been about a month since I was there last (sidetracked with The Voice of the Sea) and much has changed in these past weeks. For one thing, most of the shell collection has been taken out of boxes and placed lovingly in the new cabinets. They look great!

So shells are what I decided to draw today. The ones I picked were unlabeled, so I’m not sure where they’re from or when they were collected. I chose them for the elegance of their forms. Here they are:
