Searching for Roy G Biv: Gray

In our search for Roy G Biv, we have now come the color gray. Our hostesses, Jennifer Coyne Qudeen and Julie B Booth, had to add on some colors that aren't in the rainbow, in order to round out the year.

A statue at Spring Grove cemetery in Cincinnati displays soft, mottled grays...



Huge gray rocks at Eagle Falls in the Great Smokey Mountains...



A little footbridge at Springrove...



A towering gray rock wall beside the Cumberland River in Kentucky...



An old, abandoned building (corn crib?) on what remains of a farm in rural Kentucky...



A widow on a lovely memorial chapel at Springrove...



A view of the side of that same chapel...



Shelf fungus on a log in Lewis County, Kentucky...



A fallen silvery gray leaf...



I hope you enjoyed my grays! To see what grays other participants have on display, please visit Julie B Booth or Jennifer Coyne Qudeen.

  4. Those are beautiful greys. Hey, have you ever tried stone cutting? I only ask because I love the stones and we're both so art adventurous. I tried in art in action a couple years ago and cut/hammered/bashed a leaf in a little rectangle. Supper fun but killed my hands, (and head from the pounding), and, that was with a soft rock, so I can't imagine what granite would be like. I guess if we took it up we'd have to form a new relationship with fork lifts and jack hammers...lol.

    1. Thanks, Veronica. No, I've never tried stone cutting; I'm afraid it's probably too late at this point, though, because of the arthritis in my hands. I am pretty good, though, at laying up stone walls, etc.
