Growing up, my brother was an avid rock collector. It seems like we’ve been to nearly every rock shop, mine, cave and quarry in the tri-state area. So, naturally I started collecting rocks too. And now it’s one of my favorite hobbies.
What’s especially amazing is when you find a truly special rock out in the wild. Oregon beaches offer some of the best rock picking I’ve experienced. The photo above shows some of my finds from last year’s road trip up the west coast. I did the painting from my collection at home and the artwork will be available as a birthday card with Red Cap Cards next year.
