i got to the retreat after driving 14+ hours from tx to ky. i decided to drive at nite when it was cooler and the only thing wrong with that is i missed scenery for half the trip. a guy named javy from ft worth road with me. hes my kids age and was a great driver during his turns. the retreat is very loose with scheduling. they seem to be waiting for the inspiration to hit them at any moment. its nice. we had a short rain yesterday and that was refreshing. im going out to ride my tricycle on the large parkinglot area before the sun gets too hot. its 6am...ill write more later

ok here we go. first blog. i am a rock painter. first you find a critter you want on a rock...bug slug snake or flower. i CAN draw but using a stencil is faster and easier just to block in the base colors. then i add some details and clear coat them with spray paint. tah dah!
i sell them for one dollar at the farmers market because it draws in the kids to my booth and the parents will follow. half the time either i let the kids write their name on the rock or i will. i can turn a 16 dollar bag of rocks into 200 bucks.
