First of all; I usually don’t think things through too much. I just do it and deal with the fallout later. Such as some of my Posts here on GMG.
Sometimes I’ll Complain to Joey that I have nothing left to offer that’s interesting to the GMG Readers. Joey will say a few inspiring words. Words that I can’t repeat here at the moment. Maybe another Time. But, he does motivate me.
I came up with the idea of these “Art Rocks” When I heard the song by the band The Police, “Message in a Bottle” When I was down at Pebble Beach Sketching. So I sketched a few rocks with my Sharpie and left them for someone to find. I didn’t think of it until I received emails saying they found my “Art Rock” and loved the idea. So I did a few more and left them at Cressy Beach. When I was back there a few days later the Rocks were gone but I never received any emails. I wrote Joey an email saying the “Art Rocks” are Bust! He didn’t think so, he said just keep trying. So I figured I try one at the State Fish Pier. The response really moved me. When I think “Why do I keep doing this GMG thing it takes up a lot of my time and Brain Power. Ok, no wise ass remarks on that last one please. Now I Know why. GMG has a lot of Positive effect on people and myself. I’m just glad I could contribute a little with this ”Art Rocks” thing. THANKS! GMG, JOEY and of course DEBBIE CLARKE for all of her Encouragement and Inspiration.
OK, ON WITH THE POST.
I left an “Art Rock” at the State Fish Pier (my favorite hang out) Saturday Morning.
here’s the link to that Post: Paint Factory “Art Rock” click here
I Love viewing the Paint Factory and the going ons there during the rising and setting sun. The Area Glows with Light at those times. I decided to draw the Paint Factory on a Rock and leave it there for someone to find. You never know who will find it. I left my email address on it so the person who found it could contact me.
I’d like to share the emails with you that I received from the person who found it.
First Email From Debbie;
Thanks for contacting me.
it’s no game. Sorry you didn’t win anything other than a rock. Keep it if you like it. I paint and draw a lot. When the mood hits I’ll draw a scene of where i am and leave the rock for someone to find. A FREE SOUVENIR.
Hope you like it. I also write for a popular website here in Gloucester, Ma. called Good Morning Gloucester. It’s a site about what’s happening here and beautiful photos of the area. If you’d like you could send me a picture of you and whoever else was with you and how came across the rock and I’d post it up on that site. It’s up to you, But I hope you liked my Rock. Here’s a link to the post I put up after I left my rock art there.
