Seeing things

Image result for graphics of seeing things in clouds

Just like seeing things in clouds, I see things in rocks.

This cloud is pretty blatantly a bear.  Maybe Winnie the pooh? He seems pretty smiley and happy.

But, people have also seen things in grilled cheese, water stains , green mold on cold cuts.  Because of the number of ‘sightings’ in all forms of materials, I don’t think I am alone in thinking there is more to a rock than just a rock.

What I see in the stone has to be brought out and maybe that’s the difference to the examples I sited already.  I peel back the layers and the little rough spots so that other people can see the bear, or the eagle or the the collage that I see.

Pretty cool job  if you can get it.  I think imagination, vision, openness let us see bears in clouds and Jesus in grilled cheese . We are all artists but, it’s not everyone’s day job

Check out my shop pages if you would like to see more of what I see stones.  Carving boulders into bears.

Thank you for looking.
