Artist's description:

This painting of a Cairn, rocks stacked on each other, was painted on a repurposed roofing slate. A neighbor was having their slate roof rebuilt and they brought me a few of the old rock roofing slates. I realized what a wonderful one of kind, rock medium
to paint my Cairns on. Each one is 16X10 and I use the original nail holes to attach a wire hanger. They are ready to hang on your wall

“Cairns, Stones and rocks", in the form of still-lifes, and rock-strewn landscapes in my most recent series of paintings. The inspiration to work with rocks comes from several visits to the Lake Superior North Shore in Minnesota where I would come across these beautiful “Cairns”, rocks stacked on top of each other, created and left behind by other creative rock lovers. I consider many of my new paintings as collaborations with strangers I’ve never met.
