Double Winners !

It is only Wednesday, but already folks are gearing up for the upcoming Super Bowl in New Orleans. The San Francisco Forty Niners will be facing the Baltimore Ravens in a showdown of two deserving teams and two excellent coaches who happen to be brothers. In commemoration of this event, I have painted some rocks that feature the SF Forty Niner logo.During the end of the baseball season I painted a couple of Rocks featuring the SF Giants logo.Now, I think I will make a rock with both logos on one rock!

The beat goes on!

The good news we learned today is that the Farmer's Market will continue through to the end of March! Yippee ! The City Council of Calistoga must feel that this venue is a positive one in spite of the scaled down number of vendors and visitors who stop by during the winter months. We still enjoy the Good vibes,excellent produce and delectable baked goods every Saturday morning from 9AM to 12 noon. The consistency has brought many visitors back for breakfast burritos,olive oil,beautiful flowers,fresh vegetables,SPIRIT ROCKS and incredible seafood for their kitchen tables.

Today,I was interviewed on Radio Calistoga!

Dennis DeVilbiss came by and introduced himself and began to ask me about how I got started in this business and the significance of "Your Spirit Rocks!™" Luckily, I was prepared to pitch it and it went pretty good.Feel free to add a comment at the end of this entry, because the feedback will help me grow both personally and professionally.

This weeks rock features the 45 insert that I gave Dennis for putting me on his show and being a part of the great community of Calistoga.

Rock of the Week

This weeks rock is another flourescent/luminescent rock that was painted with the intent of keeping you company after the lights are out.I call this rock "Harlequin Heart" and have thoroughly enjoyed having this on my nightstand. When I have to get up in the middle of the night, I find that the glow is still active and alluring.This is my best designed rock to date, and with Valentines day approaching you can bet that I will have some more like this.

This week I am putting up a batch of new rocks, because I haven't posted any in the past week.These were all scanned and made into a .tiff for printing purposes. I have begun using this stuff called "crackle" that gives the red rock in this picture an antique look. I really like the effect and will be using it on rocks in the future. As Valentines day approaches, I will be making lots of rocks using the basic heart motif. If you like these, or have an idea for one... leave me a note and I will get back to you. I like the challenge of doing custom work if I can fit that idea on a rock.

Have a great week!
