This is , for the moment, my favorite of the mineral paintings. I was honored when it was selected to be included in a juried art show at the Viseral Gallery in Centerville, OH. The minereal specimen is so balanced in its formation that it was a joy to capture it in the painting.
The debut of the mineral paintings was at the 2009 Geofair in Cincinnati, OH. Since then the interest generated by the mineral paintings continues to grow. I have really appreciated the collectors who have generously lent me their own specimen to paint.
