I painted "Agate Geode" after having recently visited the Colorado School of Mines' Geology Museum, where thousands of exquisite mineral specimens lie in wait. Agate geodes form over long expanses of time; filling up spaces in volcanic rock as minerals slowly deposit. Those who find them in the wild get to peer into the quiet, patient work of millennia. Coincidentally, my twin sister recently got engaged to her geologist partner, who surprised her with a ring hidden inside of a geode.
