The Rock of the Week

This weeks rock is a one that uses a lot of "blue" glow paint.I have used different types of blue glow paint, but it is never quite as bright as the green paint that is used.When I shine a Ultra violet light on the rocks, it really makes them glow brightly. Even regular light, when absorbed during the day will allow the rock to glow when the lights go out. Florescent paint, which is colorful and bright during the day will only glow brightly under a black light.It will not glow when the lights are turned out.Many rocks have mylar stickers and other adornments which add to the visual interest. I hope that these objects of beauty bring joy and peace to you throughout the new year.

A Glowing Stone

This week's rock of the week features none other than Mick Jagger, who has been a favorite entertainer icon of mine over the years. Even though it is a silouette, it shows Mick performing shirtless in his younger days with the Rolling Stones.There have been other performers who I have featured on the front of Rocks, like Jimi Hendrix and James Brown.It hasn't been difficult finding suitable images of these "Rock" stars, because their lives have been well documented.

The rock has been painted with a green and violet patina and has glowing drops of paint all around the perimeter of the rock.

Black Stallion and Middletown Crafts Fair

I want to thank those of you who came by to say hello to me and my friend Veda at the Lionesses Middletown Holiday Crafts Fair. The turnout was good and everyone who participated had a joyous time. The same can be said too of the Holiday Art Event at the Black Stallion Winery.Both events were successful by all accounts. Many of you purchased the gift rocks as stocking stuffers for the December Holidays. Other were visiting the "Your Spirit Rocks!" table for the first time and expressed your interest in the beautiful glowing feature of these rocks.The rock of the week is a "Flower of Life" motif painted on a metallic blue rock to symbolize peaceful unity during the holiday season.

Winter Wonderings

It is not even officially winter, but if the lemon trees have anything to say about it... it already is feeling like it. The Rock business is progressing and I am happy that a few of you have made some special orders for the Christmas Holidays. I am always happy to be painting and exercising my creative abilities.At times, it can be a little difficult, depending what I will be putting on the rock. Today, I tried my hand at a Poinsettia ( see below ) and was pleased with the results. I try to make it so that every rock I paint has something on it that will glow in the dark. I don't think I can really call it a Spirit Rock unless it does. This weekend I will be doing a show at the Black Stallion Winery on Saturday, Dec. 7th. If you are on the Silverado trail near Napa, stop by and enjoy the Holiday Arts and Crafts that will be shown.
