Home Alone-lava Lobsta Blues
Photograph - Photography;digitally Enhanced
Home Alone- Lobsta Blues was creatively enhanced by Maine artist Mike Breau to commemorate the unfortunate 2018 volcanic eruptions affecting the Hawaiian Islands. This ancient seashell with the baby lobster whose claw is seen escaping I picked up at low tide in one of the tide pools at Seawall, located in Manset Maine on Mount Desert Island. It was a delicious looking discovery at Acadia National Park.
Although the claw was visibly red from cooking in the sun, it eventually stated to loose color once out of the water; but that was o.k., because it formed a nice addition to my home alone series. I brightened the claw back to the proper red for some of my works, but here in the Aloha lobsa blues theme, I felt a rarity like the blue lobster would fit the theme mimicking the rarity of volcanic activity with lava flows destroying old homes on the Hawaiian Islands.
The seashell the lobster occupied is old enough to have been formed as a conglomerate of other sea shells and the research about it led me to find that Mount Desert Island was itself formed from volcanic activity many centuries ago. Copyright 2018, Michael D. Breau. All Rights Reserved
