New Year, new day

Started my year off in a wintry creek…imagine that. Worked hard on two balances. The first one was an utter train wreck. Ugly balance, poor location, utter frustration. I wasn’t sure the second one was going to happen. Took a long time to finally come to fruition. Super cool topper on a small, wobbly spine. Cold hands and numb feet from sitting in position for far too long (hours). Had to regroup, clear my  mind and focus on the design that I set in motion. I kept telling myself it was going to happen. Again coming down to fading daylight. If no photos happened I was going to be cool with it. I just wanted to see it completed with my own eyes. Contemplation as to possibly changing the topper filled my head many times. It helps to be unbelievably stubborn in this game. Proper way to start the new year! even managed a few photos 🙂

The Gift

Those that know me, understand that I find contentment in simple things. For Christmas I received a pretty incredible, yet simple gift.  No wrapping involved with this one. A bit of sunshine and time alone in a creek. The perfect holiday in my opinion

Recent works – early December

Continual practice is the key to improvement… It also helps my mental well being immensely. Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall…love ’em all. Getting consumed in this art is an easy thing to have happen. Here’s some recent creations ❤

Creek Wanderings

Visited a new spot, far off the beaten path. Wandered for a while to get there…usually makes for better stone balancing. So much to see and investigate along the way. It’s like a mini journey close to home. Various angles of 2 builds
