Stone Garden

The first new colorway of 2011, Stone Garden, was inspired by a book I'm reading. There is a setting in the book where Mina, the heroine frequents. It's on a cliff, overlooking the ocean in winter and there is a cemetery there. She sits there often, watching the ships, the lighthouses and thinks and pines for her lost love. As I read it, I imagined the gray shades of the water, sky and head stones, the lichen growing on the tree trunks and the pale grasses on the ground and plucked the colors from my mind for this colorway. It's soft and cool, with wonderfully muted shades. Perfect for this time of year.
