    Thanks everyone for your compliments. I've always enjoyed painting, but I don't paint that often now, which is a bit of a shame...

    @ Cin, I really like your stepping stones, they are really great, I think you should hang them and use them as a wall decor instead
    @ Janet, beautiful contemporary art work
    @ Don, thanks for starting the thread. I love your water colours, I've never been that good at it, I know with the 'white', there can't be any mistake or else you have to start over again...

    @Cindi, your stepping stones are awesome. I agree with Eric . It seems criminal to step on them.

    @Don, beautiful - orchids and watercolour just seem to go together.

    They are fine out in the garden we walk on them everyday. Can't exactly hang them on the wall as they weigh about 50 lbs.

    Default Lc. Drumbeat on slate

    I found a bunch of this old roofing slate in a dumpster in the French Quarter, in New Orleans, LA. No telling how old it is. Anyway this is my acrylic painting of a Lc. Drumbeat.

    @Cin I really love your stepping stones, they're awesome!! I really like tile work, I have a garden table that I made out of slate and tried to do a little mosaic on, I'll try to post a pic soon.

    Thanks Yew and Amey for the compliments on the painting. Here are some pics of the table top I made. Its made out of some more of the roofing slate, along with some rocks, and glass tiles. Unfortunately I couldn't find any pictures from when it was new, its looking pretty rough from sitting in the sun, the shellac and grout is cracking. I found the mushroom base in a trash pile at a job site.

    Shane,

    You might try a concrete sealer on the grout and the center. There are sealers out there that supposedly last 20 years. When I made stepping stones, I always sealed them after curing for @ 30 days.
