An Artistic Rendition of My Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab

I have again been privileged to have another one of my photographs artistically recreated, this time by Florida artist Deborah Matz.  She specializes in sea life acrylic paintings and artwork.

Here is my photo…..

And here is Debbie’s 24″ x 36″ painting rendition…..

 

Crab Painting Deborah Rankin Matz

 

Truly makes me long for a big, fat juicy Chesapeake Bay Blue Crab cooked in Old Bay seasoning right now!

Deborah’s painting is absolutely wonderful!  Such detail!!  I would love to see it in person at 24″ x 36″, it has to be impressive at that size.  I am honored and appreciate her in requesting permission to paint my photo.  She does lovely larger-than-life work of all types of sea life, check her website out if you get a chance!  You’ll love them all!

    • Wouldn’t that be awesome! I used to do 1000 pc puzzles with my Mom, she was excellent at them. She’d have love this one, especially with how much she loved eating crabs! 🙂

  1. Wow! Your photo is great and the painting is wonderful! Her work is very beautiful, I just checked her gallery. And yes, those Chesapeake Bay blue crabs are the best!!

    • Thanks, Helen! Deborah is quite talented, and yes, the crabs are in on the Chesapeake Bay and I’m not there. May have to ship some crab cakes to us when we get settled somewhere! 😉

    • Thanks so much, Jet. The females have the beautiful brighter blue hue, and the one in my photo had just been caught by a local crabber along a public pier. Females are not allowed to be kept, and this one was no exception as I snapped the shot before they pushed her back into the water. 🙂

  2. If you ever have the opportunity to take a similar photograph of a crab on a dock please get a hold of me and let me paint another one. The people went crazy over it. My prints are selling very well on this painting. I love very close up shots. I think the crab on the dock makes it very relatable for the Destin, Florida area. I appreciate your skills and copyrights. Thank you for allowing me to paint from your beautiful photograph. There are several more from your collection that I am interested in painting. I will request permission and give you photography credit on each and every one. Thank you Donna !

    • Congratulations on the grand interest in your crab painting, Debbie! Let me know what others when you get ready for another painting! As always, thanks so much for asking permission. 🙂
