Memory Stone 26" x 29" - Minerals Exhibition in Toronto
I was invited by Sandra Reford to create a piece inspired by a mineral for the Minerals Exhibition featured at the Prospector and Developer Association of Canada (PDAC) convention, http://www.pdac.ca/pdac/conv/index.aspx , at the Toronto Convention Centre from March 3 to 6, 2013. The exhibition will then move to Europe and be shown in Italy, France and perhaps England. This piece is inspired by a stone called Beryl Goshenite, also known as Memory Stone. The timeline was very short; I was able to show it at our evening guild meeting on Tuesday before mailing it off on Wednesday. So here it is. I was not able to mount it on canvas as I usually do since the pieces will be travelling, so it is "naked". But I am pleased with how it came out. I had never really looked at minerals as art inspiration before. They are truly beautiful.
