This set up is the result of another one I was trying to accomplish. I was attempting to arrange the rocks by balancing them. They ended up tumbling down before I could work with them...and I liked it, so painted them this way. Serendipitous.
So, as I alluded to yesterday, I love painting series for several reasons. First of all, while the series lasts, it gives me something to look forward to painting each day without having to think about it! Secondly, it gives me the chance to work with the same subjects several times so I can get a better handle on them, (their shape, color, etc) or just approach them in a different way. And thirdly, I like being able to play with the composition and try different but similar arrangements. I have several more series coming up. Here's today's painting music. (To continue looking at the art while you listen, right click on the colored word 'music' and go to Open Link in New Tab.)

I keep waiting for the wave to come in and wet them! It's a beach thing...

Your series are always fun to view. Keep up the good work!

Love all the variation in color you get in the rocks... very 3-dimensional!
