Original Oil Painting - For Sale

These two members of the Pisaster seastar family are unusual in that they look so similar to each other. These reference photos were taken at a divespot that's close to the Monterey Bay Aquarium, off OceanView Blvd in Pacific Grove, California. I just love the "pose" they are in. It must be a rumba! 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.
