Rock appreciation

A jack of many appreciations and tonight it was time to comb my living room rock display.
good rock, good boy.

my rock displays are not suiseki but i have a definite affinity for rocks. 
even when we were little we would scour for hours in search for that perfect rock. 
when we found it, we seemed to have properly punctuated the story of our trip.
even had a tackle box that housed my collection.

today i focus on the stand alone, submersed in a field of sand.

i am aware of the traits of the japanese art and i actually use some of their rules to define my impressions of the stone. 
but once again i do this from my plains' eye and notions.

one of my preferred brushed for working the sand.
