The New Jewels

The new jewels
On a recent trip to The Pike Place Market in downtown Seattle I came across Gem Heaven.  I really was in heaven!! It was fun looking at all of the interesting stones and fossils but I had to find ones that would work..flat enough not real heavy....good color....and?? They had to have a reasonable price. You might think that big honking purple one doesn't fit the not too heavy..and you would be right.  It will have to go on board...canvas is just to wimpy for that big guy!

I have two paintings in the works now and have been playing with which stones to use on them.  Teazer, my assistant, has been a big help.

More on that later.
