Rocks For Tossing

"Rocks For Tossing"

Beach rocks. Rocks for tossing. I photographed these while walking barefooted along a shoreline that  was being lapped enthusiastically by one of the Great Lakes. The smooth mounds were easy to walk on, but more fun to fondle with my fingers. They begged to be handled, and I did.  

I painted this tonight, amazingly quickly, after a brief conversation about tossing rocks. It just felt ... right.
