My daughter and I gather the shells from Grapevine Lake in Grapevine, TX. I allow the shells to speak to me and guide my hand as I paint so that each design is truly unique. I like to include bluebonnets on the shell in tribute to the artist Porfirio Salinas, who gained fame from his paintings of the Texas Hill Country in springtime. They are a true representation of Texas.
Every painting Frankie Couch creates is an original. She makes no copies. All the concepts depicted are the result of her artistic vision so no two items will ever be exactly alike.
