Painting Furry Rainbow Foxes on Quartz

This picture is a glimpse of a piece I'm working on over a pile of crystals in my living room.  Sam went mining in the Nevada desert and came back with two cases full of quartz crystals.  They have a strong ability to heal and beckon creative spirits.  I must say painting on a pile of these babies helped my focus and really moved the painting of the fur and detail quite nicely.  I had to be careful not to over do it, once you lay down a wash of watercolor, there's no gettin the same luminosity if you layer too much paint.
