Mountain Graffiti

Sunday afternoon in Vermont in spectacular autumn weather, after our guests left, I got out the diamond grinders and went at a rock installation which Jon Bohl placed for me almost two years ago when he had his 19 ton Hitachi excavator and bulldozer handy doing the foundation piers. The stone is over 6 feet high. Mosaics are planned but may wait till next year and inspiration. In the mean time we are both pleased with the result. Louise helped plan the layout of the cuts. I stopped at dark on Sunday with the vertical curve cut, and resumed on Monday morning cutting the horizontal wedges. In cities they do graffiti with spray paint on buildings. In Vermont we use diamond grinders on granite boulders. Graffiti is one of the aesthetic manifestations of hip hop culture, so we are with it!
