I am playing with these images (this one, and the two below), Picasa-style. The shell paintings themselves are luminescent pearl and soft thalo gold set against bone white stone. When my photography skills catch up to my painting abilities, I will show you how they really look. The website for Bedrock Art is scheduled for grand opening in three weeks. Stay tuned!
