Watercolor of the day ~ Stones of Lore

Stones of Lore #1 ~ Watercolor by John Klobucher

Hello friends and art fans! Here’s a little Art of Lore

Not long ago during a summer sojourn in London, I took a day trip to the mythic site of Stonehenge, the silent circle of great gray sentinels that stands watch just a couple of hours — and thousands of years — outside of the city. It was more wondrous, more moving, than I’d ever imagined. An ancient ritual dance preserved mid-step in stone on the green rolling hills.

This painting is a simple song of that place, a poem of monoliths still ablaze with the spirits of those who set them here.
