Giologica

Giologica is a dedication to my love of geology and the attentive study of intricate natural specimens. All rocks and minerals exhibit strong individualistic qualities and are an echo of vast distances in time.
All work in this project is watercolor on cotton paper. Often using mineral pigments that are of the same mineral as the specimen being depicted i.e. amethyst pigment used to paint an image of amethyst crystals.
In addition to the work being a study in patience and realism, it also serves as fuel for my abstract work- I save the color swatches that are discovered with each specimen painting and use it to serve my larger abstract work.
