Cangrejos

Oil,  20 x 20

In the Zodiac,, “callinectes sapidus”,  the “beautiful swimmer”  represents the sign of water, Cancer, and the progression of seasons marked by the summer solstice.  To natives of the Chesapeake Bay region,  the Blue Crab is a summertime table treat, prepared  as crab cakes, crab chowder, crab salad or deviled crabs. The favorite might be simply steamed crabs, piled high on newsprint served  on a banquet table, with the requisite wooden knockers and hammers, some Old Bay, bowls of vinegar or melted butter   Growing up, the art of picking a crab clean was a life skill, a cherished social event  practiced in leisurely fashion on hot summer afternoons, surrounded by good friends and family.
