I’d forgotten all about this task during the trip when Jackie, part of river group, starting collecting the most beautiful rocks along the river bank during a stop for lunch. Wow, art in rocks! The shapes, colors, lines, and textures were beautiful and then the Artist’s Way exercise came back to me and I thought, what the heck, I’d start my own little river rock collection!
Here’s a photo of a journal sketch I made during the trip of river rocks and their beautiful colors- especially when the rocks are still wet. And I’ve included a photo of the rocks I ended up finding on the tripa lso. They now have a special place in my studio, next to my little Inukshuk, on the window sill. The river rocks remind me of the energy I get from being out on the land, fully in nature. They remind me of a great trip, good times with my Dad and my husband. They remind me of beauty and they add delight in my studio.
