Some days my daily painting is based upon some minutea of my day, other days it might be based on something that effects people on a national level. Today the entire world is focused on Chile and the amazing rescue operation that is going on at the San Jose gold and copper mine. I didn't have any gold, but Debbie has a fascinating collection of rocks from her geology days which is were I found these two types of copper sulphate. which are great colours and nearly as uplifting as watching the miners being plucked from the bowels of the earth! Currently 22 up with 11 to go. Watercolour and pencil 19cm x14cm.
