The inspiration of this piece is Amethyst Cove – a steep ridged beach in Nova Scotia, Canada. Adventurers at Amethyst Cove can find amethyst, agate and other fascinating rock formations if they are willing to look for it. The steep cliff is outfitted with ropes to help you along the lush green forest. The lapping dried ink technique mimics the hidden gems in the geology of the rock. Hints of gold in this piece catch sunlight and glisten with the earthy tones of mossy green. The horizon gently welcomes you deeper into the painting.
