Is it Ready?

Watercolor, pen, 11x8"
After being on the Battenkill River (Vermont) for the past 4 days, I have seen so many rock sculptures and they looked so stable and serene. So I made some too. Some were successful, some failed to defy gravity. Then I got to thinking, what if a scruffy looking Gnome was going creating these sculptures I see randomly place along the river? Thinking along those lines, I found that making these sculptures just right takes time, stability, and patience. Much like the point where all artists come to at the 'end' of a piece: "Is it Ready?"
