I drove East to the confluence of the Sandy and Bull Run Rivers this morning, and dug around on some cliffs for ochre. Came home with yellow and red rocks up to 6" in diameter, and some small pieces of hematite! I also picked up a few pieces of jasper that were tumbled smooth from the water. I love the way they feel. After that, I finally went through an orientation at the woodshop on campus, which means that I can make my first painting panels!
