14th of November – seahorse on a touchstone

November 14th, 2011 at 1:00

Hope you all had a lovely weekend. I decided to focus on art and creativity and not get to hectic about posting. I started a sketch and a painting and might post and link to those two posts in Mr. Linky for the 12th and 13th. But first I I want to share today’s creative arrival. I moved away from my more traditional designs for the touchstone carvings and tried something entirely new yesterday. Meet Harold the seahorse (I call him Harold, but you can call him anything you want he doesn’t have ears and is stone deaf!)


I tried putting a little marco composition together, but this seahorse didn’t like the close-up shots I tried to take with my little geology lupe and my phone camera. I recon it was just a bit too dark.

    He is so sweet! It makes me want to dig out my old rock carving kit :>

    Cool! So different from your others.

    I laughed out loud in delight when I saw this. My Dad’s name is Harold, and he had one of those flat top haircuts when we were kids.

    Another wonderful piece, not sure about Harold though, looks more like a ‘enry to me.

    This is so very dear… seahorses and stones are a great combination. It might be weird, but I would rather have a rock look like this with art on it than be all polished up.

    I am grateful to pop by your #AEDM2011 blog post! You’re doing great!

    This is so beautiful. I have never been able to do any kind of carving successfully so I am amazed at those that can.
