Oil Painting of Amethyst Geode by Rusty Harden

Amethyst Geode
Oil on Canvas
16' x 20"

Mineral owned by Matt Black

I don't usually paint minerals on canvas.  Because of the size, I thought I would give it a try.  (Hard board is still by favorite ground.)  Actually, I started this painting at the mineral show in Cincinnati but didn't get back to it until  this week.  I'm very pleased with it.  The  geode is close to 16" at the base and 17" high.  The painting of the geode is very close to those that size.  Well, its my mineral painting season.  I'll be coming up for air and food from time to time....

Thank you Matt Black for allowing me to work from your minerals.
