Art and Oatmeal: A Wishing Stone

A Wishing Stone has a white ring around the entire rock. According to Wise Old 'Possum Woman, if you find a Wishing Stone, hold it between your hands, make a wish, and then throw it into the nearest body of water such as the ocean, a lake or a stream and the wish will come true.

Art and Oatmeal with California Peaches (all gone). Derwent Watercolor Pencils and Water Brush. Strathmore 500 Series Mixed Media Journal.

Limestone rock with white quartz ring. The top sketch was the first try. Hah, not even close. I have a tendency to elongate everything! Tried again below it and next to the rose. Better, but not completely satisfied with the result.

Happy enough with the third effort to call it "sketched".  On to the next rock...
