Working at getting an art display ready for the East Coast Gem, Mineral and Fossil show.
Started this about an hour ago....hoping to have three or four paintings for one of our 53 cabinets at the show.

I figure another hour and I will be done with the painting above. I want to make people think about painting art as another expression of love of minerals.

Nice work. Always adds interest to a case I think. We have various antique mineral prints for use that way.

Gail,

As always, I'm simply in awe of people with artistic talent, and you certainly qualify! My mother could look at any kind of art form and go home and recreate it nearly perfectly. Me, I can't draw a bloody thing to save my life! My son, on the other hand, is a naturally-born artist and can draw beautifully. Maybe I can pay him to draw minerals for me... :)

Thanks and I look forward to seeing you at Springfield!
Robert
