ROCK ON!!
























I had a go at Linda's rock challenge over on Awfully Big Art Adventure, but only just finished it. Managed to nettle myself collecting this from the garden, but I suppose we all have to suffer for our art!!

I painted it with a gorgeous Lumiere paint called Metallic Russet - it looks more like pink to me - added a pewter heart and the message "love is all you need". I absolutely believe that nothing in the world matters except love and how much of it we give away, so this is a message to myself.

I finished it off with a spiral pattern of silver dots - I was sort of thinking of aboriginal art and ancient rocks and tribal memory etc..... I know what I mean! This is going to sit near my pooter with some of my other "treasures".
