ROCKBOUND-a rug not the BOOK

Another wonderful rug from MAINE and  from the Shelburne  NOV 2009 rug show hooked and designed by Lanci Valentine of Duxbury Mass.
This rug also, is a terrific example of a floor rug-the design works from all 4 sides , and it lies well on the floor.
I think I am fascinated by rugs that rock as I am designing  one myself but it is going to be with shells and water  (ocean waves).  .
Therefore, I am sketching and looking, looking ,everywhere for inspiration . . . that is anything to do with my own subject-. . . . later for the shells. . . . .. .
I am fascinated with these beautiful rocks on the border combined with  simple primitive style trees,water and sky . . . .I can almost feel I am on Deer Isle  looking up at the sky . . . . I really like this rug!
I wonder what colour the floor is that it rests upon?
