A SPECIAL SET OF ROCKS, 
MOST GIFTS FOR VERY SPECIAL FRIENDS

Here are some photos of rocks I've painted in the past couple weeks.  Two are copies of Liesbet's original designs, and one is an attempted translation of a medium-sized painting she did, 'Sun-tree', onto a rock. I think it turned out ok.  We often 'copy' each other's styles or designs, and we don't even charge licensing fees to each other!

These rocks are all from the east coast of the South Island of New Zealand, and we have to thank our dear friends Barry Brailsford and Cushla Denton for telling us about these special beaches, and to Philip Kennedy and Anneka de Leur for the use of their Honda Starlet two years ago which made it possible for us to access these remote places. Immense thanks also to Jack Oldridge of Kaiapoi for unfailing assistance at storing our rocks and getting them to us wherever we may be.

YOU ALL ROCK AND SO DO YOU, MOTHER EARTH!

THANK YOU FOR LETTING US ALL GET SO STONED!
