Moving to 3-D

Painting on Rocks with variations of the color orange will bring images forward, especially if they are on a green or blue background. The fish I am displaying here are really fun to look at with a pair of 3-D glasses. It will be as if the fish is floating on top of the rock. I intentionally added seaweed both in front of; and behind the fish. This enhances the illusion of depth.Goldfish are one of my favorite motifs. They are so graceful and beautiful to watch,particularly when looking at them from above in a coy pond. I may have future images from that perspective.The Russian Orthodox Church here in Calistoga has a wonderful coy pond inside their courtyard.This is where I get my inspiration.

This week's Rock of the Week

This week's rock is one I did awhile ago, which features a Chinese symbol which represents Longevity. I like the colors and general size of the rock.Chinese symbols intrique me, as do their calligraphy.I used a sushi roller for the background to the rock because it is made of bamboo, which is used a lot in Asian culture. I also like the midrange colors which are easy on the eyes.I am presently working on another of what I call "Spinner" rocks which I will feature next week.

The Answers to the Puzzle

Okay, so you think you've figured out which rocks are the same, eh? Well check the grid below with your picks to see if you got them right.Click on the poster itself to get a better view. The rocks that were lined out were the ones that did not have a match.

I have printed out a large 18"X24" poster of this image, that I will sell as a limited edition print for fifty dollars. If you are interested in purchasing one, contact me through the form also on this page.
