Sea Star Square Dance (Pisaster giganteus)
Oil on Mahogany Panel - 48" wide x 48" high
Original Oil Painting - For Sale

These members of the Pisaster seastar family show the range of colors and markings that can be seen in the species. I just love the "formation" they are in. I can hear the square dance music now. Commonly called the Knobby Starfish or Giant-spined Seastar, they're in the same genus as the ochre seastar Pisaster ochraceus, you see those all along the California coast tidepools when it's a really low tide - both species love to eat mussels and other mollusks. The reference photos for this come from scuba dives off OceanView Blvd in Pacific Grove, California.
