The Motherlode!

I’ve started several Elementals since I got settled… here’s one that has a deep metallic back wash with dark elementals in red, blue, purples and indigo:

But, I’ve also been wanting to start a few Fossils (I paint fossils with smooth rocks that I place in puddles of watercolor and then drop in various colors around it as the puddle dries over 4-36 hours).  I didn’t haul any of my usual rocks out here that I paint with in my studio, knowing that the Oregon beaches, particularly Agate Beach (just a 5 minute walk from my place, through the tunnel) is the Motherlode of painting rocks! 

I’ve been over to Agate Beach every day for the last few days searching for great painting rocks.  After this morning’s trip, I have enough to start some Fossils this afternoon.  Here is a picture from my trip to Agate Beach this morning.
