Mother Nature’s Chapter on Geology tells the story of vast scales of time, substance and change manifested in lines, colors, shapes and textures.  These expressions and the processes that formed them have always piqued my interest.  This brief study of geologic features explores these elements.   Imagine the countless variations : hence a perpetually interesting subject for me. If it is designed by Nature, especially plants, landscapes or geologic features, it is fair game for my interpretations. I record by photo and sketch patterns, colors and textures that catch my eye. Recent works have moved into the third dimension and I am enjoying experimenting with textured gels and the variety of unusual materials I’ m trying. I look forward to progressing further with my new studies of elements of design.

    Your subject and study of geological forms is intriguing, interesting and beautiful. I too resonate with Geology since long ago helping my Dad study for an exam using actual rock samples!
