Challenge #119 Draw a rock

This is my version of obos (see below). This is with apologies to my rocks. They are beautiful rocks and I didn't do them justice. So something else to add to my list to improve on: cats and rocks.

"Being an unusual configuration, it is obviously from the hand of man. Further, if it is knocked down, it is easily rebuilt. They can be anywhere, mostly in gardens and parks. Obos is a destination, a sanctuary, a shrine, and a focal point that reminds us that we work with our hands. We are builders and what we build is sacred. Obos may appear inconsequential and be unnoticed by casual passersbys. It's a private tribute to something higher, something we might be striving for but find difficult to attain. Approach obos with a relaxed, curious mind. It can help with answers to questions not consciously asked. Obos gives pause, a contemplative thought or a new direction, a respite from clutter, a rededication to our struggle and an affirmation of the value of our personal effort. Obos is the carrier of a golden secret. Obos is like art itself. Obos is a joy to build." --- Taken from "Painter's Keys".
