Some weekend work 12/21/20

Three more finished rocks. These will go out this week as holiday greetings. I’m doing three at a time: spackling, sanding and painting.

A young (12 year old) friend asked me a while ago to illustrate his book. I finally sat down this weekend and tried my best. The book is a fanciful story about a magic porthole, giants and fairies. I hope he likes some of these.

It should be a nice easy week-I’m only working today and tomorrow, off the rest of the week. Have a good week before Christmas-and a lovely and peaceful Christmas Day. Nina.

      The rocks have come a long way. Spackling and sanding first makes them a lot better. Happy holidays to you, Claudia, and as always thanks for your support.

        You know, what you said reminds me of something that I think could be a rule for life: the preparation is as important or more important, as the actual work. Whether is it painted rocks, my painting the basement, sewing, making dinner, laying concrete…I could go on and on. The whole process matters. I like thinking about this. And… your rocks make me smile. Always.

    That is going to be one delighted 12-year-old! The rocks with all their light and color against the darkness feel perfect for the winter solstice and the holidays. Merry Christmas!

    Your rocks are beautiful, Nina, and illustrating this young man’s book is a lovely thing to do. That is how Michael and I started our Sir Chocolate book series. He had ideas and I helped him implement them.
