Kayleigh and I went to the seaside today at Clacton-on-Sea. At the beach she helped me wash lots of rocks, and I wrapped up the parettiest ones in plastic to bring home.

My thought is to use them in some kind of dump art project, but I’m not sure what to do with the rest of it. Maybe I could print out 1 or 2 of the photos I took of Kayleigh today and use them as the backdrop. Should I try painting the sky a la Angela Cartwright? Maybe I could use a waves texture plate on just part of the picture—combination of water and sky to blend the picture together a little.

What else could I try? Could have the pic and rocks be only the top part and have the bottom (1/3) be what’s under the ground, flotsam and jetsam, gems hidden in the earth (use Rox recently gotten), a sea monster in its den, “hot lava” as it reminds me of Kayleigh and it’s like the burning love for one’s children; something that indicates or represents ineffable mysteries, things that are hidden.

Just now we passed some fields—cows, cows, cows, then bunnies. Must have been at least 30 of them. I know they are a nuisance to farmers, but they sure were cute.
