New Year's Rock

Lately, I've been scanning my various rock creations and dropping spectacular, vibrant backgrounds behind them.This one has a white metallic cloth that I scanned and brought into Adobe Photoshop and tweaked with the Pinch filter. I love the way it showcases one of my favorite rocks.I will be featuring a different rock every week in the new year, so stay posted. If you have an idea for a rock, leave me a comment or sign my guest book and I will get back to you.This year will be a great one.

Happy 2013 everyone !

The Disco Rock

The Rock of the week is one I call the "Disco Rock" because it reminds me of a lot of the dance clubs of the 70's. It has lots of florescent dots and lots of luminescent dots. The florescent dots look great under a UV/Black light that causes them to really pop out in the dark. I purchased mine at the local ACE Hardware for around 12 dollars.Scorpion Master has them for sale online. Note the difference between "Florescent" and "Luminescent" dots. Florescent does NOT glow-in-the-dark. Luminescent does.

Most of the rocks I paint will have something with Luminescent paint on it, to substantiate the claim that the rocks do glow in the dark. Lately, I have been including a lot of florescents because the colors are so bright.The dots also have a textural feel, which add to the overall experience.

Thanksgiving was wonderful, and so were the Arts/Crafts shows that were well attended. Your Spirit Rocks ! It is with much gratitude that I write this. Everyone who made a purchase at The Black Stallion Holiday Art Show or The Aegis Napa Valley Craft show really made these past three days just great,and this is in spite of the inclement weather and flooding throughout the Valley.
