Rock of the week

This week's rock is one I call the Superswirl heart.This is just in time for St.Valentine's Day.The backdrop is a silver cloth I've used in the past to showcase rocks that I deem very special.The heart is a popular motif which has universal appeal. As a symbol for Valentine's day, I think it is appropriate to consider this as a gift for that special friend or lover. I have plenty of other heart rocks that will be for sale at the Farmer's Market throughout February. I even have a few heart-shaped rocks that I've found at the beach. These are ones I keep an eye out for whenever I go collect rocks to paint.

R.I.P. David Bowie

This is a picture my sister and I modified in Photoshop.It is quite remarkable how an image of Bowie can be transformed into a visually pleasing art piece. He was a very talented performer and visionary.He will certainly be missed

New Poster for the New Year

Below is the new poster that I will have in front of my vendor's site at the Calistoga Farmer's Market. I created it using Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator. The poster is !8 X 24" and will sit on top of tripod under a plastic frame. A lot of people are not sure what "Illuminated" means in relation to the rocks, and hopefully they will come and ask me what it means.I have started using this term instead of "Glow in the Dark" because it more accurately describes how the rock look at different times of the day. The row of heart rocks on the poster itself shows the various views of the same rock.

"Keeping this Coupon"

I have a little coupon on my bulletin board that has been tacked up there for over a year. A neighborhood kid came by collecting donations for a raffle that the local elementary school was having.The winner was going to be announced that following day.However, it was brought to my attention that I "Must be present to win". Hmmmm... okay, I'm down with that, but if I am not there,another number will be called and I will be plain out of luck as they say.

That got me to thinking, "Must be present to win". Isn't that true in life as well? Every day do we "Suit up and Show" up at our jobs,school or other places of business dragging our feet, not really being present?

It is important to be present wherever we are.Awareness is the first step in being conscious of our actions, so it is certainly to our advantage to"Keep this Coupon" and be "Present to Win". By the way, the coupon is still pinned to my bulletin board as a reminder.The rock below is a symbol of that presence that is in all of us.
