Shark's Tooth Hunter

Diane Mannion, Shark's Tooth Hunter, 6x6" oil
      A familiar sight on Venice area beaches... the perfect shark's tooth hunters form!  John was much happier posing for this than the Piggly Wiggly Tee position from yesterday's post!  Shark's teeth, FOSSIL shark's teeth... to make that perfectly clear, are shiny and black.  Some are three or four inches long!  But those are not easy to find.  A good day at the beach means having your pockets filled with twenty or thirty, quarter to half inch teeth.  Three-quarters is a real find.  And then, remembering to remove them from your shorts pockets before the laundry is done.  Have fished jars of these things out of the washing machine, one of the perils of the Floridian life style.
