Colin Richards | Two Birds, One Stone

This work was in part inspired by Colin Richards’ finely rendered drawings and watercolours. The title was very almost “The Last Stone,”  an inversion of Richards’ title, “The First Stone.”

Interestingly, Google says there is another Colin Richards, an archaeologist whose specialty is the great standing stones in Scotland.
