The Stones

Blue Water
On the table
It's amazing how much fun one can have with water, ink and a few stones.
The smooth stones I've been painting were left over
from one of Manolo's building projects.
He bought them in bulk from a building supply shop
& now they're all mine to play with for the next few years :-)

I sometimes wonder what your Manolo looks like. Yep.
Considering the beautiful house he built (designed?) , he must be talented, also creative.

You made such beautiful art pieces out of these stones! And you still have quite some work to do! I found your blog through Stephanie Levy's interview with Rhiannon Connely and I almost regret that I haven't found it earlier! Your work is beautiful, thank you for the inspiration.

I love the way you honor your husband on this blog. It's such encouragement for your sisters in Christ. (Titus 2, internet style!)
I also admire the way your creative interests balance each other out. I'm inspired!

What luck, enjoy your treasure! I'm going to find some stones to crochet. Love the idea of using them as paperweights and a touch of beauty around the house.
