I was able to collect a whole big canvas bag full of rocks at Russian Gulch.After driving through Santa Rosa I stopped by Michaels Art store to pick up some paints and metallic stickers.It was good to take a drive and let things ride today. I am not feeling particularly creative today, so I should do other things to have the Spirit move me.The rock below is sort of a Buddhist Mandala in honor of my sister, Tara.

The fish I painted on the rock is an attempt at creating 3-D motifs which seem to hover in the air when viewed through some special glasses that I've ordered online.They are called Chromadepth Glasses™ and can be purchased in a variety of styles and prices.
Turning out the lights with the black light on the rock, the orange colors jump forward as the blue colors recede.Although the 3-D effect cannot be re-created here, you can imagine how cool this must look.The fish seems to be swimming in it's own little pond!

If anyone would like to order a poster or custom rock for a friend, give me a call or shoot me an email and I will be happy to serve you.
This poster is one that now signifies the latest and best of the products that are on display at many of the shows where they can be purchased.
This next poster is more of an experiment. I used Prismacolor to enhance areas that seemed to fall back to give the poster a mock 3-D effect.The down comforter on my bed has served as the perfect background for this display.It allows a beautiful formation of folds concentrically surrounding each rock

David created a compelling design awhile ago of a folded heart sculpture made of steel. I thought of a way to make this piece somewhat utilitarian by having him cut an inverted hole in the middle of the fold to support business cards or even a rock like the one shown below. I hope that he is able to generate more of these pieces in the future, because of their attractiveness and usefulness.
