Randy My Abalone Diver

“Randy My Abalone Diver” by Carol Chloupek

This was a real feat for me. I drew my abalone diver and then added the rocks and kelp and seaweed. I was constantly asking for advice and corrections from Randy to have it as life-like as possible. We were hoping to find a very small abalone shell for this picture, but that did not happen so I had to use yarn to get the effect of a red abalone shell under water.

This postcard is dedicated to my husband Randy for his love of diving. He has been an avid abalone diver for over 35 years and we are still counting. He has enjoyed many a trip up the Northern California coast with family and friends. He has always returned home with his limit of abalone.

The California Red Abalone is a delicious treat if prepared properly which Randy has perfected to the delight of many. Not only do we get to feast on the meat of the abalone but also their large shells are beautiful when cleaned and polished.
