Pastel Study Key West Pinks
Phyllis O'Shields Contemporary Impressionism
Today will continue a series of posting of illustrations that will be used in an illustrated book of Gulf Coast Memories and especially the foods of the Gulf Coast and the Caribbean that I grew up eating and cooking.
These illustrations in pastel, cover memories from New Orleans, Florida Pan Handle, South Florida, Florida Keys, South Carolina Low Country and the Caribbean.
These are areas are rich in tradition and in receipes handed down for generations.
Many delightful memories of sitting on the beach or in the back yard peeling "Key West Pinks".
Everyone knows that the famous "Key West Pinks" are the most celebrated shrimp, delicate and delicious a real tradition during the winter holidays.
