Inspire Me Monday - Stones

Inspire Me Monday

May 26, 2014



Every block of stone has a statue inside it and it is the task of the sculptor to discover it.


This week I am inspired by Stones. Stones are Rocks, Gems, Strong, Old and Solid from the Earth and Beyond; which can be Metaphoric to all of Us. Yet "Nothing is Set in Stone". What are the Gems, Stones and Rock Solid things in our lives? Some people handpaint stones; which is an inspiring idea. 

I always loved the Stonehenge and its mystery.  So I painted a Mini Stonehenge and plan to paint another one about 6 x 9 inches (17 x 24 cm) this week.

This is Mini Stonehenge 4 x 3 inches (10.5 x 8 cm).
 I wanted to draw and paint Stonehenge. I like mini art.
 I plan to make a bigger one about 6 x 9 inches (17 x 24 cm)

The past is a stepping stone, not a millstone.



I believe that one defines oneself by reinvention. 
To not be like your parents. 
To not be like your friends.
 To be yourself. 
To cut yourself out of stone.


A good character is the best tombstone. Those who loved you and were helped by you will remember you when forget-me-nots have withered. Carve your name on hearts, not on marble.
