Landscape painting through the still life.

Here are some paintings I have been doing over the last few weeks . These are studies from rocks taken from the landscape of Cyprus.  I have been looking closely,  creating a representation from the limestone, sandstone, and serpentinite.   These take on an abstract quality which is also reminding me of cave paintings and how the artist in those days used the natural marks and features in the rock to create the imagery of animals and people.  I am not quite sure where this is heading, but I am interested in the way the weather erodes the rock and stone work from the landscape and buildings around cyprus and I am becoming interested in ideas associated with entropy.
