Treasures at the river.

Down at our favourite little river spot I’m always finding these beautiful deposits of minerals in all different colors.

Figured I would collect some today for crushing into pigments.

Most of them are already so crumbly it wouldn’t take much effort.

A bit of black, red, and yellow hues. All so natural and earthy.

Even found some gold flakes that probably aren’t gold, but they sure shimmer when you spread them out.

Might use them to for gold leaf highlights if I can get enough of it.

My mind is racing with ideas…

I wonder what I’ll end up making with it :)…

Go with the flow…

Oh, the joys of painting with a toddler. As I finish one part, and get ready to move to the next like a blink of the eye… tiny little 3 inch hands squishing paint in the middle of it all!

Yay!

So.. ok.. looks like I’m doing another layer!

..but as she starts to emerge I’m kind of happy with how she looks. She’s really starting to get that “head above the water” feel to her.

Can’t wait to see how she decides to end up. My paintings always seem to have a plan of their own.
