"Kern River Rocks"

This morning a good friend asked me via email if you did not need an income from your paintings what would you paint? A very interesting question for artists to ponder. Rocks came to my mind right off, the shapes, the temperature shifts of color, the way they fall on one another, they are always appealing. With that jump start I painted "Kern River Rocks".

For whatever reason, I love rock paintings. They are surprisingly difficult to pull off well. Their infinite variety and warm and cool faces create interest and rhythm.

Enjoyed talking with you today!!

HI Marian, I agree, rocks are as individual and interesting as people and so intriging to paint. I enjoyed yesterday very much, too. Laura
