Entry Description: I pulled off to the side of the road at a look out point along the Nova Scotia coast and hopped over the guardrail to climb on the rocky coastline. It was made of shale and I was, at this point, a shale hunter. Richness emerges from the ordinary. Story and art takes form in this thin layers of seemingly uneventful stone. And then there's the colour and texture that breathe life into rock. I love it and feel the energy in the art forms that they take.
