True strength is delicate.
~ Louise Berliawsky Nevelson

Another in my new series harking back to posts from the Art Thursday archives! This is from five years ago. I thought cairns would be a nice thing to revisit for their beauty and meditative qualities.

Still love them!

The first one is indeed a peaceful vision.

I must admit, though, that the Cairn in Ireland is not peaceful; actually it's kind of menacing.

The Fungal Rock Balance is cool...I see a blueberry on top. :-)
