A gift for me!

Recently I went to a neighbors to wish him well after surgery. But I'm the one who came away with a gift. Becky, his wife, was doing zentangles on rocks! She used a Sharpie and other black markers to completely cover this river rock. Then she added a varnish to seal the piece.



Here is the "bottom" of the rock.



This just shows that we cannot use the excuse of running out of art supplies! I'm so pleased to receive this piece.

This is awfully beautiful and a clever idea.

It is also good that if I need art supplies I don't need to go to the store, I can just go outside and grab a rock. Good point!

this is.......AWESOME! Much better than "My Pet Rock" :D

Thanks Sandy. Enjoyed your blog. You have some beautiful drawings. I can see how quilting and zentangle compliment each other! My rock looks better on the screen than in person, but artists almost always leave room for improvement in their pieces.......

I love the rock, I could never do something so neat! I imagine smooth rocks from the beach work best?

Beautiful art rock! I would never have thought to use Zentangles in this way. Thanks for sharing. And I hope your neighbor's surgery went well
