To quote Dante’s Inferno: “There is no greater anguish than in misery to remember the happy time.”
The majestic scene represents our glorious memories.
Misery, grief, torment can melt our majestic scenes.

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.

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!

This painting in very dramatic. Who knew I could ever let the drama inside of me out....

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