Alice’s Beach Stones
I began drawing on beach stones many years ago. Right away I knew I was going to put some of them back on the beach. I imagined somebody walking along the seashore just daydreaming and looking at stones. And there’s a stone looking back! That vision really tickled me, and it still does.
When I moved to Provincetown, I was in heaven. So many stones…and so much time. Pretty soon I was putting my stones all over the place.
I put them on the shelves in the A&P and in sugar bowls. I leave them along the bike trails, drop them into coat pockets and put them on fence posts.
My friends have helped me to spread these stones around the world. Some have been placed in famous museums like the Louvre, the Museum of Modern Art, the Hermitage and the Tate. One was carried to the top of Mount McKinley, others are at the bottom of the Grand Canyon. One was tossed over the Great Wall of China. Any number may be found on beaches in Alaska, New Zealand and Venezuela.
Each stone is an original. Picked up, hand drawn and initialed by me. Each is coated with a waterproof finish. I’d like to think that coming upon one of these stones will cause an involuntary flight of fancy.
P.S. Since these stones are all one of a kind I suggest you email me immediately at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can check availability. Please send all checks or money orders right away for these items current demand is such that I can only hold each stone for seven days from your inquiry + order. Thanks!
