This was a good week.Yesterday I met with my good friends Lee and Miriam. They enjoyed the glowing stones so much that they ended up purchasing over two hundred dollars worth.To date, that was my biggest individual sale except for Louise, who purchased two very large rocks a few weeks ago. Todays Farmer's Market was packed with many tourists from everywhere in the Bay Area and points beyond.I had one couple listen to my explanation about how if you put a rock next to your child's bed at night to asuage any fears of the dark. This was a good selling point that many parents were considering.The rock shown below is one that was worked on with good dose of cake decorating sensibility

I like to call this rock a “Bobby Dazzler” which is something I heard in Australia many years ago. It is a design which I am beginning to perfect.This would be a Meditation Rock which you would hold in your hand to ground and center yourself. I look forward to making posters of these type of rocks as I am certain that they would be even more stunning blown up.Perhaps I will do another show at the public library,much like I did last year.

This weeks rock was created in the usual centrist motif that i have come to repeat many times over. It just seems like my brushes,paints, materials or rock surfaces lend themselves to producing this type of starburst design that is much easier to repeat. I have experimented with painting black rocks, and using fluorescent pink to take advantage of the high contrast. I have also experimented with interference acrylics to render a two-toned effect that is also quite nice. This weeks rock is successful because it turned out “less messy” than many others.I am always venturing out,taking suggestions and looking for new methods and materials to provide you with the best work I have to offer.As always, “Your Spirit Rocks!”

It seems like this summer passed by more quickly than last year, which was the first year “Your Spirit Rocks!” went into business. A whole assortment of new designs and types of products went into production.Everything from buttons,bumper-stickers and bottle-stoppers to pendants, paperweights and wall posters were made.As the summer moved into August, my focus and skill level went up and people were noticing. Thanks to all of you who have purchased a rock. You are my official patrons! The Rock below is called the TEMPLE ROCK and it is the featured “Rock of the Week”.
