Weekend batch #?
I spent some time this weekend painting rocks again. As Claudia McGill has suggested, this is a very meditative activity for me. I’ve evolved it into a production line with steps: first paint the rocks flat black, paint in white the mandala-looking design, go back in with colors.
The first couple of steps. The white suggests an outline of what to paint. I start with the color and the next few colors will reveal to me what they should be.
The purple started to look very Easter-eggy. I knew I had to use some gray and yellow ochre.
I don’t know why I am painting rocks as I have mentioned before. I am putting a lot of painting into these; I almost think I’m reverting to my textile design days when we had to do some small-brush detail painting on the prints of the 80’s.
A couple of these are for work friends. I made one for my practice manager that says “The Buck Stops Here”. I didn’t think she’d know what that meant (I believe it was a plaque on Harry Truman’s desk) but she laughed and said “Nina, I’m not that young “. (She is but she knew the phrase.)
Anyway, I’m not sure these are totally done. They need some black outline. I hope everyone is feeling well and looking forward to a good week. Nina
