"Polished Stones"

Oil on 4x4 in. Ampersand gessobord

I bought these little polished stones in a souvenir shop along Virginia Beach years ago. I came across them the other day, and thought I'd try painting them.


  1. Beautiful job, Debbie. A couple of them remind me of jelly beans!

  2. Love it.
    The colors and shapes in stones are so interesting.
    Nice work.

  3. Fantastic job on these stones, made them look so true to life.

  4. Thank you all for the comments!!
    AutumnLeaves, I didn't think of that before, but now, you're right! some do look like jelly beans! I must have them on my mind :-)

  5. What a great little piece! I don't think I've ever seen anyone try this subject before. Love the way you captured the textures and highlights. -Sarah

  6. Wow, you can almost taste their coolness! Very well done, and such a small size.
