The Rock of the Week

This week's rock is one that I've been tinkering with for a while now. You can see that it has a hidden image that is only activated under the UV light. This rock is generally what is considered to be a meditation rock. Repeating patterns is something that is intriguing to me. Developing a design from the inside out or the outside in will sometimes put me in a trance. Carefully, as each dot or stroke is applied, my attention and focus has to be precise.

The painting I do on the rock is more like decorating a cupcake at times. The "Paints' are really fabric paints which are quite gooey and unpredictable when applied, but after they dry can look quite appealing.. The invisible ink does not appear to be as permanent and long lasting as I would like.Perhaps in the future something like that would be possible to manufacture.

This Week's Rock of the Week

August reveals summer at its height, and I've been remiss in adding content to this blog. My bad. Art, in general, has taken precedence over the rock painting. Inspiration is essential to the very important pursuit of beauty in all forms. The concept of Beauty is how this spiritual journey began ten years ago. After all, our world is a benevolent place that beckons all of us to follow our bliss, our calling.

You see, I've been over-taken with the beauty witnessed below. She is modeling a piece I created just for her. It is a Sun/Moon pendant which is adorned with glow beads and gold glitter. Yellow is her favorite color, so no opportunity was passed by when it was added. It has been an honor to have her wear this neckpiece, as it has brought out her best qualities which are her sparkling personality and a kind smile.

Enough said.
