Sundays “Art, Rock!” Found

A few hours after Sketching, Dropping and Posting My latest “Art Rock” Sunday, I received this email from the Serrin Family.

“As soon as we saw the post we rushed right over there.  So excited to finally find one!  We are big fans of GMG.  Little Jack Serrin loves his new toy.”  🙂    The Serrin Family

The Serrin Family Photo of where I left the Rock

Here’s Little Jack Serrin with his new Toy

I accept no responsibility for the damage "Little Jack" may do with that Rock

Thanks to the Serrins for the Kind Words.


SHARPIE Drawings From Deb and Me. Or is it Deb and I?

Here a couple of Sharpie Drawings from me and Deb Clarke.

I got addicted to the Sharpies From Debs videos and Drawings.

The thickness of the Sharpie point keeps your Drawings loose.

I’m Addicted!

Paper covers rock, Deb Wins!

Here’s one of Debs and One of Mine;

A Sharpie Video from Debbie Clarke;

Here’s a link to a few more of Debbie Clarkes SHARPIE Drawings;

BANANAS, ROCK!!!!! Breaking News Update!

Drats! I’ve Been Out smarted again.

The clues I gave must’ve been too easy.

I think it was the Banana Splits TV Show Theme Song that Gave it away.

Here’s The  photo of Kerry, and Her Mom, Karen McNally After Winning the “Bazaar Art Rock Contest”.

They are the Winners of a ROCK! An “ART, ROCKS!” Rock.

They Figured out all the clues and Found their way to the Vintage Clothing Store “Bananas” to claim their Prize.

Here’s the Emails I received from Kerry and Her Mom Karen;

Hi Mr. Frontiero,

I would like to let you know that I found your awesome rock at Bananas!
My mom and I are very excited!!!!

I love painting, and I have been collecting art work from different states. I would love to add your rock to my art collection.
We walked around main street, this afternoon, telling your story of the painted rocks.

My mom had fun solving the riddle, and I couldn’t believe that I actually found one of your amazing rocks!

Thank you!

-Kerry McNally

From Karen; (Kerry’s Mom)

Your artwork, and how it was discovered, has been Kerry’s main topic of discussion with friends and family since Saturday.
The excitement of it’s find has not diminished, and I don’t think that it ever will!

Kerry says “Thank you for the great adventure”.

Thanks!
-Karen

I’m Humbled. Well Honored is probably a better word. 🙂

For my Rock to Be included in Kerrys Art Collection.

Thanks so much Kerry for the Inspiration!

 Big Thanks go to my Friends at BANANAS for hosting the contest.

Thank you Richard and Debbie!

 Can anyone name all 4 members of the Banana Splits?

 

I went to Gloucester and all I got was a Rock

I hope those Homies don't give up the location

I4C2 more “Art, Rocks!”

I Talked to Joey today. I had this great idea. Instead of leaving an “Art, Rock” someplace. I could use the GMG Petty cash to Hire a helicopter, fly over the Farmers Market and drop them on the shoppers below. He was’nt to thrilled with the idea. The guy’s a fart! It would’ve been AWESOME!

But Anyways,

Here’s the Hint; After 4am  Look for a natural Shady place, not a tent, or a building. Easy Enough. If you find it and if you’d like. Take a picture of yourself with the Rock and we’ll feature you on GMG.  Goodluck! Sorry all finds are Final no returns.

Rockport, Good Harbor, Rockport and Downtown will be this weekends Target.

Only GMG Readers get the Hints.

Art Rocks! Looks Like it found a Great Home!

 

First of all; I usually don’t think things through too much. I just do it and deal with the fallout later. Such as some of my Posts here on GMG. 🙂

Sometimes I’ll Complain to Joey that I have nothing left to offer that’s interesting to the GMG Readers. Joey will say a few inspiring words. Words that I can’t repeat here at the moment. Maybe another Time. But, he does motivate me.

I came up with the idea of these “Art Rocks” When I  heard the song by the band The Police, “Message in a Bottle” When I was down at Pebble Beach Sketching. So I sketched a few rocks with my Sharpie and left them for someone to find. I didn’t think of it until I received emails saying they found my “Art Rock” and loved the idea. So I did a few more and left them at Cressy Beach. When I was back there a few days later the Rocks were gone but I never received any emails. I wrote Joey an email saying the “Art Rocks” are Bust! He didn’t think so, he said just keep trying. So I figured I try one at the State Fish Pier. The response really moved me. When I think “Why do I keep doing this GMG thing it takes up a lot of my time and Brain Power. Ok, no wise ass remarks on that last one please. Now I Know why. GMG has a lot of Positive effect on people and myself. I’m just glad I could contribute a little with this “Art Rocks” thing.  THANKS! GMG, JOEY and of course DEBBIE CLARKE for all of her Encouragement and Inspiration.

OK, ON WITH THE POST.

“Art, Rocks!”

I left an “Art Rock” at the State Fish Pier (my favorite hang out) Saturday Morning.

here’s the link to that Post: Paint Factory “Art Rock” click here

I Love viewing the Paint Factory and the going ons there during the rising and setting sun. The Area Glows with Light at those times. I decided to draw the Paint Factory on a Rock and leave it there for someone to find. You never know who will find it. I left my email address on it so the person who found it could contact me.

I’d like to share the emails with you that I received from the person who found it.

First Email From Debbie;

Was in Gloucester today. Found your rock at State Pier around 12:30 not sure what your game is please tell me if I was supposed too turn it in somewhere.

My reply back To Debbie;
 
Hi, Debbie,
Thanks for contacting me.
it’s no game. Sorry you didn’t win anything other than a rock. 🙂  Keep it if you like it. I paint and draw a lot. When the mood hits I’ll draw a scene of where i am and leave the rock for someone to find. A FREE SOUVENIR.
Hope you like it. I also write for a popular website here in Gloucester, Ma. called Good Morning Gloucester. It’s a site about what’s happening here and beautiful photos of the area. If you’d like you could send me a picture of you and whoever else was with you and how came across the rock and  I’d post it up on that site. It’s up to you, But I hope you liked my Rock. Here’s a link to the post I put up after I left my rock art there.

The Last Email From Debbie;

I think this is the best game, hide and seek! With an awesome prize. It is the best souvenir I have gotten.
I went up there with my friends Greg and Anita Dziedzic and Jim Gularte. Anita lost her son in Iraq on 8/1/05, Sgt. David Coullard, he was a Marine Sniper and my friend. Jim is a sniper instructor at Camp Pendleton who has reached out to Anita. We all went to see Gloucester a favorite get-a-way of Anita’s to try to help her through this emotional weekend. It really brightened her day when I found the rock. Thank you for sharing your art with us.
Debbie, South Windsor, CT
 
I really don’t know what to write after that email.
Other Than, Thank you Debbie, you made my Summer.
