Such a lovely rock to handle
It fits in the hand perfectly
Cool, smooth and heavy
with surprising cracks running over the surface
and a small rusty blob.
I like the simplicity of this one
Minimalist but beautiful.
Moving on to the ugliest one so far!
Afraid I just didn't do this one justice.
I wanted to add a bit of colour and contrast
but it really didn't work!
Another one with a rusty stain.
This one I like.
This must be the week for cracked pebbles!
This one too, I didn't do it justice.
Should have been more subtle.
Now, this one I love.
The stone is still stained with mud
so I decided to use a brown linen
just to bring in another colour.
Nearly a perfect sphere.
The Rusty Pups love my studio too.
They find a spot among the baskets and basins tumbling over with scraps.
They like it even better if something has tumbled out of those baskets
'cos they can rest their noses on it!
Pebbles are happily lining up for their turn.
