These photos are from a big granite rock wall in the forest.
Today I wrote a little fragment about images I associate with those big granite rocks. It will be part of my mythological world, which I still try to order. It is a challenging task. There are certain figures which represent a certain way of being, or an energy and then there are stories and fragments of stories. But little by little it grows and get more coherence.
After that I made a painting trying to capture something of this stone experience. I have always seen granite rocks in the proximity of the sea, so somehow they are also connected with the waters of the world. The painting might still change later on. It is acrylic on canvas en approximately 1.50 high and 80 cm. wide.

https://www.thoughtco.com/what-is-granite-1440992 written by Andrew Alden I did find some information about the geological background of granite and this statement struck me because it matches what I saw, while writing about it this morning:
"Granite is the signature rock of the continents. More than that, granite is the signature rock of the planet Earth itself. The other rocky planets--Mercury, Venus and Mars—are covered with basalt, as is the ocean floor of Earth. But only Earth has this beautiful and interesting rock type in abundance."
