I Heart Rocks


Click on image for larger view.


I remember being five years old, sitting on the ground beside the school swings, and being in awe of the amazing variety of rocks to choose from...way more rocks here than at my house...WoW! Lol!
And things haven't changed much! I still collect rocks, and I've passed on the "rock nut gene" to both of my kids, too. Our window ledges are veritable streambeds! 
We went on a bit of a nature walk yesterday, to check out the "new river". It's completely blown out and changed it's course since the flood. It's quite a mess down there, but still beautiful, I guess. The kids and dogs had a blast. I kept my eyes scanning the ground for cool rocks, while my hubby clicked away with the camera. Above are a few of my finds for the day...I love the heart shaped ones...:) It's watercolor pencil with ballpoint pen, on my Robert Bateman bristol sketchbook. It's not really meant for watercolor and buckled a bit. I couldn't figure out how to photoshop the weird scan marks out without making it look over-photoshopped...Anyways...that's it for now. 
Ciao!
