These rocks were some of the early creations that were a result of my trips to the ocean. My friend Veda has thought to enhance the rocks by wrapping them in colored wire that she bought at a craft shop in Guerneville. One can take these to the next level by exploring other ways to embellish or showcase them.
Last year, I decided to scan several rocks and make poster size images out of them. These were eventually shown at a one-man show at the local library in St. Helena, CA.I had no idea how regal the rocks looked after scanning them and noticing all the great detail the digital format provides.
Photographing them, and placing them in previous drawn pictures via Photoshop produced some interesting compositions like the one below, which was made into a gift card. Creativity is only limited by your imagination and the tools you have available.

Click on the link just above the picture of the Rock below.
If you have your own rock, I would take the time to see what it looks like under different lighting conditions and environments. It seems that these rocks have personalities all their own.

Thursday is the Fourth, and the Fair is well underway. I suspect we will have the Sprint cars and explosions keeping all the neighborhood dogs hiding under their masters' bed by night fall.I do have some concern for those animals that have no idea what is going on,but FEEL everything.Something to think about.
The picture below is of a rock I plan on making. I saw this design on someone's t-shirt and thought it looked quite "fetching" if you will excuse the pun. Have a great Independence Day everyone !
