Blue eyed stranger amid Buckeyes 6"x6" oil

The buckeyes rolled in and surrounded the Blue Eyed stranger.  What a curious creature they thought, it is so shiny and blue!
The Buckeye is an acorn from a small southern tree and is carried for good luck and to ward off bad luck even today. The Indians had stones they carried called worry stones and the white man had his own worry stone in the Buckeye acorn.

The composition on this piece is just really fantastic. It leaps right at you from the thumbnail version, and holds your eye long after. Great job!

Love the painting and the info you give. The placement of objects is wonderful. I make "buckeyes" at Christmas time: peanut butter balls dipped in chocolate. They look just like that! I didn't know what real buckeyes were. Thanks!

Your marble paintings are amazing. The Buckeyes make such a great contrast here, there's something about the combination that brings back happy childhood memories. (!?) Lovely!
