#7 pebbles

Each pebble a masterpiece, a miniature map, an ancient landscape.
An Australian painter, Brian Stratton specialises in painting pebbles in watercolour . . . Headland Driftwood – Charmhaven.
When I was about 10, I knew all the rock names – like Igneous and Sedimentary but now I just know they feel good and look good enough to eat.

Do you have a childhood interest you would like to revisit?

    My favourite is the one that looks like a painting of trees in a forest. No, wait! The pinky one. No! The one on the orange background.
    Ok, I like them all.
    Just don’t eat them though. Hard on the teeth.
