Beauty in Diversity

Yesterday I received a very generous pebble donation from a fellow artist I admire greatly, Diane Clancy! I have to admit that I knew it was going to arrive any day, but it’s always a surprise when I open the the packages regardless of whether I knew it was coming or not. I tend to get very excited like a child at Christmas. πŸ˜€ Diane sent me 9 pebbles from her hometown in Massachusetts.


Aren’t they wonderful!? I think pebbles and their diversity is what makes them so special. They can be rounded, flat or rough, and the colors are limitless. You can see from the photo that 2 of the pebbles have hints of red in them. Gorgeous!

magentamoonDiane was also kind enough to send me a little gift and I knew what it was before I could even get the bubblewrap off. She sent me a print of an ACEO that she recently created and I remember admiring it on her blog. There is no way she could have known but this is one of my favorites from her new line of Pastel ACEOs.

Thank you so much!!!

Please be sure to check out all of Diane Clancy’s Art on her website:

She is a gifted and inspiring person who I feel privelaged to know. πŸ™‚

  1. Diane’s pebbles are so different! Those in the foreground look translucent. She is such a generous soul.

      Yes those little pebbles in the front look like pure Quartz pebbles. They shimmer when you hold in the light. πŸ™‚
