11/14/17 Tuesday morning before work. 9:45 to 10:40 am. 50 degrees, sunny. Calvary Cemetery. More leaves on the ground than on the trees.
Pictures taken on site –
The mausoleum is at the center of the first picture and sketch. I walked to it and sketched it as well. Basic colors and shapes done on site, more color added at home from the reference pictures.
I have been a member of 615 Rocks for a few months, but have realized that I’m not very good at painting rocks. There is so little space on the rocks, and I’m not sure how to work with the uneven surface. I have a lot of different crafts I do so I’m unwilling to master another one. I’m becoming too scattered. I need to focus on one thing.
But I had this little pile of rocks I needed to do something with. So I spray painted them copper and wrote inspiring words on them.
I took these three rocks on my wanders on Friday, 11/17/17
I left the “Hope” one at the CVS in Hermitage.
It was found by Rachel Michelle, who then took it to the CVS near Harding Place. She said “I found it the day I turned in my two weeks notice to begin a new better job!!! It was the sign I needed!”
Someone else took it to Vanderbilt hospital, where it was found by Jess Robertson, who said “Couldn’t have found this rock at a better time or place! I think I’ll hang on to it, we can definitely use a little “HOPE” right now!… Found it as I sit with my husband recovering from heart surgery…much needed!…I plan to rehide it once he’s discharged…prayerfully it provides the same hope for someone else’s family!”
How nice to know that one little rock – with nothing more than a simple word, can inspire so many people. It is wonderful to see how it is touching people’s lives.
