Calling all Spirit Rockers !

Greetings my friends,Today is Sunday and I am about to paint a few more rocks after a day of mondo creativity. I am also working on a viewing capsule for YOUR SPIRIT ROCKS!™ so that you can see all THREE lighting states (i.e. Daylight, Blacklight and Nightglow) It is still in development, but this year will be the year for breakthroughs.Finding the canisters and black LED lights has been tricky. At this point, I am searching the web for these and finding suppliers stateside is challenging.

Below is one of my favorite rocks as of late.It is not always easy to find heart-shaped rocks so this one is very special. I still have a few more just in time for Valentine's day, though.

The Rock of the week

This is a dandy of a rock that I designed for a regular patron. It is a flower, loosely resembling an Iris. I took liberty with the color and adornments of the rock, just for aesthetic purposes. Saturdays at the Farmer's Market have been very cold, but hour by hour you find yourself peeling layers of clothing off as the sun rises in the sky. This month has seen the continuation of a terrible drought where the days are Spring like, but all the trees have lost their leaves and all the plants and lawns are drying up. That is why I offer this flower as a symbol of hope for the Spring which will surely come if Winter ever decides to show it's true colors. Perhaps we will get some of that liquid sunshine come February.

The Hummingbird Rock

This weeks rock is one that many people request.This image is not mine originally, but is a mylar sticker that I have adhered to the rock. Hummingbirds are unique in many ways. They fly and hover over nectar bearing flowers, and can approach them from many angles because of their wing speed and ability to remain stationery in mid-air.Their are many different types of hummingbirds and will vary in general size. Using this image as a totem calls forth one's desire to approach a subject from different points of view, and a rapid ability to detach from a source.There are more than 300 species of this beautiful minute bird, with its iridescent plumage. Hummingbirds range in size from the tiny bee hummingbird, which is only about the length of an adult’s little finger, to the giant hummingbird, which may reach 22 centimeters (8.5 inches)—the width of a magazine page. There are nine species in North America. The hummingbird is a very good example of the evidence for God as Creator.
