Birthstones - Opal by twosilverstars Birthstones - Opal by twosilverstars
I have decided to do a birthstones series, and as this is october I thought Opal would be most appropriate to start with. Hope you all like her :aww: You can view the other finished paintings in the series here.

I would like to thank *faestock for the lovely reference.

Love this! Thank you for making her opal and NOT pink tourmaline (which I've never been a fan of). :)

Love your birthstone series! And I was thrilled that you chose the opal for October instead of the pink tourmaline, thank you!

Opal is my birthstone. This is pretty sweet. =)

Though, I'm wondering why there aren't more green/orange colours in the picture since that's what most opals have.

Either way though, I like this piece, it's very tranquil.

I've started a similar series, but not yet released any, they are just going to be for a 2010 calendar I think (If I can even finish all 12 lol)

Beautiful work as always!
