Paper Weights

Stones on the ledge
Oriental Poppy
Einstein quote
The hare and the butterfly
The fox and the crow
Freshly painted rocks to keep papers from flying away in my studio.
The weather is warmer and I love keeping the windows open
to let in the fresh breeze. I used acrylic inks and a liner brush.

You're absolutely right! I like the transparent petals of your red poppy, on the almost perfect round pebble...

Just lovely, Geninne! Were your ears burning yesterday? I was talking about you and your blog with a friend yesterday. Just talking about the beauty and inspiring quality of your work. That is always makes me feel a little calmer and more peaceful after perusing your posts. Such a nice gift. Thank you. :)

They're really beautiful Geninne. :) I made a painting on a pebble once when I was really young. I wonder if my mum still has it?
I love pebbles.

beautifull! I especially like the one with the poppy!

I agree with everyone: these are beautiful, but especially the one with the poppy. In fact, did you know that growing up my sister and I called our Dad "Poppy"? We still do! I guess, depending on what accent we used, it also sounded like "Papi"

I used to always paint rocks and pebbles when I was little but they were just very simply painted in one colour. I never thought of making little paintings on them. Yours look so amazing! I'm sure they look just as great holding the paper from flying away!

Love those teeny tiny details, so where did the stones come from? No babbling brooks or rushing rivers in these parts.

It seems that I am not the first cat (my name is Cat - Catherine) to love your little birds and the company they keep. Your work is sweet, loving, inspiring, incredible and so many more words... I found you on Etsy and followed you here. Thank you for sharing all your lovely images and creations with us and for offering inspiration. To see you work just gives me a happy feeling...like sunshine on a cold, gray day...it pulls me up and carries me into the light; high above the earth and away from the everyday world; allowing me to see everything differently, even the things I already know so well...you shine a light on them and make them gold. Bravo and thank you for that!
