New series-"American Agates"

I've been working on a new series of paintings. I'm crazy about geology and maps, so I wanted to combine those passions with this series. I create an acrylic poured under layer to mimic natural stone and gems. I create a very thick, matte textured layer of acrylic and other materials on top to create a silhouette. Then I flood the bottom layer with a high shine coating to give the look of stone. The piece has the feel of a textured topographic map, along with the polish of semiprecious stone.
