This is the Polymita Cuban Land Snail. Last night I watched a PBS special documentary about the Island of Cuba where these snails have chosen their habitat and was totally blown away with their beauty.

Ale, let's paint them.  Since "a little of what we like does us well".

....and as to whether there is anything more beautiful than Nature.....only the smile on a friend's face comes close.

I'm so glad you came for a visit so I could follow you back here---your work is just beautiful!

Maria Cecilia is so charming...I would love to actually see her home...I can only imagine!

We moved here from California--are you near there? I miss it there, but Salinas, where we now live, is actually very similar...and absolutely beautiful.

I'll be back to visit glad you stopped by!

So very beautiful! Nature paints, sculpts, sings, dances, and expresses itself more beautifully than anything man can do, and all praise to God, its' Creator, for His creation seems beyond the ability of we mortals to adequately appreciate~but I do appreciate it.
