I have a thing about cairns. Aside from the fact that they are ROCKS and I love rocks :) I love looking at the stack of them... their different colors and shapes and textures. I started, when I moved to RI, to collect white egg-shaped rocks. Quickly that turned to all white smooth rocks, and then black rocks, egg shaped and also sort of tubular. Then flattened black ones, and... a few lovely seal gray ones. Which led to speckled ones, in brown, off white and gray based colors.
Now when I tell you that my husband practically agreed to move once because he thought (bwa-ha-ha!) that we would be rid of the rock collections... you must believe me. And I DID leave most of them behind.... but I had partners in my crime - my 2 sons, who also loved rocks. Now they're grown and I have to admit I have this.... addiction! Fortunately for me every winter throws up millions of these lovely large stones on our shores. My poor husband. I think I will build a stone wall with them.... or decorate the garden with cairns...or paint them or something. They seem to have little personalities!
This one is 6x12, and it just may make it to my Open Studio in August. If not.... I'll paint another... maybe a really BIG one! :D Be well, friends, and thank you for your comments!Pin It
