|"Wood Rock" 36x24 mixed media|
This painting was based on a piece of petrified wood I found in a gem and mineral store in Taos.
The wood/stone was polished on one side, but the other side, which was rough, was the one I chose to paint.
I added more "stones" in the center crevice. Those "stones" are actually pieces of shells and broken auto glass.
It was a lot of fun to paint a geologic abstract with the model, with it's amazing subtle color variations, sitting right in front of me.
