These were just little jewels, 1/4 to 1/2 inch long, lined up in a crack in the granite among the jetty rocks. The beach was very large and flat and shiny at low tide, quite stunning, but these were so unusual, and I’d never noticed them before, so I had to share them. They look like they were painted with tiny 2-hair brushes., with stripes and dots and squiggles galore.
As I struggle in making art, I wish I had the ease of creation so well demonstrated by nature (Nature?) But then, I haven’t had billions of years to perfect my work. Enough said.
