Surreal Abstract Seashell Crop and Lines

Gold seashell crop with white pinstripe circle and lines. Surreal abstract art by Joseph Westrupp.

The title of this picture is Sand. It stems from the appearance of the shape in the center, which seems to be formed of sand pouring in from the top of the circle, as if part of an hourglass.

It’s actually the top part of a seashell, perhaps just under a third of the whole thing. Showing any more of it stripped out the minimalistic harmony it has now.

This picture is the serendipitous result of combining the background of a scrapped image with the shell, which was the subject of another piece that ended up in the electronic recycle bin.

There’s a black and white take on this called Black Sand.
