Geometry of Shells #100

Geometry of Shells, Still Life -  artwork by Emily Miller
The geometric spiral structure of a pink seashell with part of its shiny interior revealed. I have loved collecting and studying shells all my life, growing up on the coasts of Kauai, California and Maine.

A friend brought this shell to me and I just had to paint it. Seeing into the spiral structure of the shell's core got me thinking about the Fibonacci sequence and the golden spiral - a numeric ratio commonly found in nature and expressed visually as an expanding spiral - the mathematics of beauty.
