Thanks for stopping by and becoming a follower, Rusty! I think your choice of medium and subject of minerals are quite interesting!

Hi Rusty. I like the dramatic and vibrant colour in this piece.

Pattie,

Painting the minerals is one of the coolest subjects I have ever painted. They are always so different and always a challenge.

I really enjoyed looking through your blog. First, I love the name. Second, your portraits look so "honest".

I keep checking back!

I am not surprised that Don Quixote is one of your favorite books. How perfect is that.
