A mineral has specific physical properties, and a rock is an aggregate of minerals, not having a specific chemical composition. Minerals are formed through a biogeochemical process, and a rock is a component of this material. My focus in my paintings lately has been rocks. The texture, the shape, the environment in which they exist. Everywhere. Displaying time, displaying the weathering of time, and erosion. There is a giant idea in my head, and I am trying to draw it out. Piece by piece I am seeing where this project will go. These two minerals Chrysocolla and Citrine are my inspiration for now.
Jewerly artist Jean Balke, formed Nallik, some of the most gorgeous jewelry I have ever seen. Elegant, simple, and most pieces are one of a kind. I also think these necklaces are priced extremely well.
