Here's a new shot of something I just finished up. We went up to Deception Pass on Whidby Island and found some great agates on the shore there. So that's what inspired this painting. I had a lot of fun working on this one. About half-way through I decided that the composition needed something to make it more interesting, and I came up with the idea to include the group of light-gray rocks to break up the scene. I'm pretty happy with how it came together. I'll probably do more of these. Rocks are so interesting, and have such beautiful and unique features -- it was fun to scale them up and really explore them.
