O' Canada


Home of some of my favorite Canadians…I won’t name names but YOU know who YOU are. Wow the things and places and peoples and music and on and on y’all have there. Amazing! And I found this simple Rock, yes a rock {insert smile} you’ll read about the maker and where it is on the postcard in a minute {please wait a minute}

Soooo cool I want to touch it! Anyways my imagination found it great fun to think about this Rock.

Postcard #10 is from Liz to Allen – Canada :  sculpted from Paper Clay, painted with a sandstone gray acrylic, applied a pale blue stamped tissue on top; Background is Prisma pencils



It reads:

Dear Allen, sorry about flying off the handle. It was very childish of me.  R.H. told me of your distress over… well lets drop all that.
Have you heard of Bill Vazan & his Story Rock at the Musée de Plein Air de Lachine, a park in Canada? You know my story, but I don’t know yours …
                                    All my Best
                                                Liz



Whoa, can you imagine, a rock that can tell stories… really can you imagine? …
What if it could “record” your story … WoW I know! What would it tell? What would you Want it to tell?



Close UP

Please drop by Darcy’s at Art & Sole to visit my fellow travelers on this week’s Canada trip… you’re gonna love what you see there. I sure do like working with a 3D sort of format on these Postcards.

Happy Arting y’all

A lovely tactile postcard! I agree, a great garden ornament - do you make them bigger? (only joking!)

Just loving Bill's story rock, the colors/dimension...
definitely a lot of juicy stories to tell...in Hawai'i we call this a kupukupu design...spirals are very magical and found a lot in the natural world. aloha.
