The Rocks Live Forever - Rattlesnake Rock by C. Frederick Lawrenson
  The Rocks Live Forever  (2007)
Subject: Rattlesnake Rock
Dimensions (inches): 24 x 34
Medium: Acrylic on Masonite
Description: This painting was inspired by a place along Pine Creek known as Rattlesnake Rock. I took liberties with the background by creating the look of an older forest on the other side of the creek to give the viewer a feeling of being able to walk back into it. Also, I wanted the whole painting to echo the ancient quality of the rock formations, which is why I included the blue heron. They have such a prehistoric look to them that the heron was a perfect fit for these rocks which were here long before any of us. The uprooted, sun bleached tree on top of the rocks along with the eroded grooves in the sides are indicators of the many levels of water Pine Creek has seen throughout its history. If left alone by man, this formation will be here long after we are gone, lending credence to the old Indian saying that 'only the rocks live forever.'
