Balance created along Boulder Creek. Lush Spring Green. Living on a feeling.
THANK YOU EVERYONE for bearing with me through the recent drama with the local cops. everything happens in perfect time, precisely as it should. and life is all good thanks to a focused will, and a mob of support from all of YOU!
also wanna say hey to everyone including the 25K new followers over the **last week*** (no joke… wtf!! really!!!? )…
An interesting, unexpected result? funny this all happened at once..
Definitely the biggest boom i’ve experienced thus far in this page’s existence! still digesting… feels like a bit of pressure to broadcast my work to 86,000 followers!! haha, but i have a feeling that the best is yet to come!
I have been practicing for about six months now, and I am getting better, no where near your level , your art is amazing. It feels good defying gravity.
I’d love to hear their explanation as to WHY IN HELL this was considered to be an illegal criminal offense ?
Well they say there’s no such thing as bad publicity :-) I love your sculptures, thank you.
I just read your story! Watched some videos and liked your page.. And I’m in the 96,000 followers! Can’t wait for my next trip to Boulder..it’s feeling overdue for sure!
I can’t believe you and your art. Simply incredible. Thank you for sharing.
And now over 95k followers ;) Art speaks! Rock on!!
I AM REEEEEEEALLY HAPPY FOR YOU! And for US!!! We get to continue to enjoy in awe, unimaginable beauty. Such a gift!!
Nothing like a good headline to get you new followers. ~ Signed: New Follower.
David Coleman and William Coleman, have y’all seen this before?! amazing. totally amazing.
Just read about what happened to you.. It made me really sad to think that we in this city have come to such a point. Happy for the good outcome and for Boulder, too. You are appreciated!
So glad it got worked out, I’m a long time fan, calendar owner, and I hope to enjoy your art for a loooooong time Michael!! Love & Light to you!

Why the F do these ding bats stack rocks? Go play with yourself….
Amazing & beautiful and I love the quote. Tying together life and art
You Rock ;-)
Bet you never guessed how being harassed by the cops could help you out. Keep breaking the barriers of what we call ‘impossible’. The new world begins today. Thank you for your amazing contribution to our world.
This is really a cool zen meditation
how do you even do that !?
Never heard of this artist before but the picture is amazing. I would absolutely love to be walking in the woods and happen across something so seemingly mysterious.
Meanwhile teenagers in Colorado can access pot without a second thought…priorities are messed up in Colorado!
Come visit us in Basalt some time- we’re on the confluence of two amazing rivers and we’d love to see your work up close!
Can any object then be balanced?
Great Spirits Blessings To You ! Healing Arts …!!✨
u r awesome your # 1 troll
Gorgeous; u rock!
you do understand why the cops told you this right or has all common sense been bread out of you liability is still a word chum
I personally love the way you found your talent with Mother Earth.Who would have known,with out our God given rock’s.It’s ok for people to suck the blood from Mother Earths vain and call it oil!! Good luck ,support you from Denville La. Bayou Girl!
Wish they would have put so much effort into pursuing someone like this back in 1996.
Its a great site keep it up
Pretty neat. Thanks for sharing; Jesus Christ Bless! :)
Cops should give a ticket. That’s not art. Calm down that’s a joke.
Simply amazing @ what he does ! ! !
It’s our pleasure to to support Michael. My kids are just fascinated watching you stack rocks as am I.
Why was this even an issue in the first place?
Rock on! ;)
maybe these police officers should go apply for work in Baltimore !!!
That is beautiful. Don’t know how you do it, but it is beautiful.
Thank you for sharing this art with us! Its awesome!
I must say you are all kinds of awesome !!
I wish I could visit Boulder and photograph your work!
Only in Boulder… Get a job, hippy!
Interesting that the cops think that they can create laws to enforce………and that they have nothing better to do.
I have been following from Alabama. I think your rock stacking is absolutely gorgeous.
pft, do it with Stonehenge and then I’ll be impressed, you hippy. what is this?? rock balancing for ants!?
If you think it’s so easy,try it yourself.
Like the look of what you’re doing, but just goes to show how “politically Correct” the government feels it has to be now days. Glad to see you stood up to them. I remember Boulder from the 60’s,70’s, n 80’s. Many fond memories of weekends on the Hill.
Nick Stone estabas hablando sobre esto?
You are INSPIRATIONAL!! and Talented! keep it going Art Warrior!
Those are Steinmaechens. Someone doesn’t like you and are using cops to confront you rather than confront you themselves. P.S. Don’t blame the cops, without the ordinances they can’t do a thing.
A citation for THAT? Are you fucking serious? How exactly does that effect the natural environment in any way shape or form? Hell, if anything all it would take a nosy animal to knock it over and it would just be the same rocks laying there that were already there.
Do you secretly envy the pyramids of Egypt?
Government is toooo big.
Boulder cops-maybe you should solve the Jon Benet murder instead, since you have so much free time…
What the hell???? The police are being totally ridiculous. It is very cool how you do that.
Nothing spoils getting back to nature like hiking in to a great are and seeing a bunch of stacked rocks, no matter how intricate. We knock them over and toss the rocks so the area can be “natural”. Leave nature the way you found it. Stack them if you want but knock them down when you leave.
amazing art! love to see more of it….what’s the secret? Did you really glue it?
My kids and I love your art! In fact my favorite pictures of them are of them trying to do what you do:)
this is actually art? , loks like a learned skill. sorry thats not art. but hey more power to you if it floats your boat.
It’s all balancing work :) all of it!
Just seeing the pictures of this is amazing, how is this in any way going to hurt anything! Wow and I always thought Boulder was a pretty cool place to live, must have gotten pretty uptight over the years.
When nature and art become illegal ……”Murica Rock on man!
Insane work. Silly cops have nothing better to do it seems.
New fan from Quebec! Glad you were able to turn this around and hopefully Boulder will find a new balance with their rules!
I’m sure the constitution has it stated somewhere that rock stacking is a crime! Who wouldn’t declare this heinous act to be a felony most serious?! This man is clearly a terrorist! Note my heavy use of sarcasm!!!
Man, those officers need to get a life or some hobbies. This is just ridiculous. Just another case of big egos at work. They must feel like they’re really putting themselves in the line of duty by bullying an artist.
WOW, the system on steroids!!! I guess they going to arrest mother nature too LOL
This is great shit…. Fuck The Police
FTP! Love your work! Keep Boulder weird!
I’m glad it worked out. I admire your work and the patience it must take.
The calvary is coming!
Thank you to Boulder Police for bringing your beautiful work to my attention :-)
I didn’t know this art even existed! I’m so amazed! The areas where you work are so relaxing and watching your video was a treat! Thank you for all you do!
Stacking rocks is Art? No, it’s childs play for an adult who has nor real skills
Yay for the internet!
They are not going to enforce it -but the threat was a d-bag move in the first place Boulder officials. Thanks for getting art attention though.
ill be kicking em over every time
Go volunteer dude…….make a difference In kids life…stacking rocks? Really? Holy WTF!
Plus I think you may have autism….you should get checked..
You and your work are amazing!
As I child I played with rocks and stacked them up – so are the police going to start arresting children when they stack rocks?
only in Boulder
just found you….so stoked for you, keep defying gravity!!!!!
I see those all over the trails.:)
Go Michael Go! Don’t let anything stop you!!!!!
Whats next arresting kids playing in a sand box?
Conceptual artist Christo has unveiled plans to envelope Lake Iseo, a freshwater lake in Italy’s Lombardy region, in more than 750,000 square feet of yellow fabric, but it’s against the law to balance rocks in CO??? WTF??? Seek your passion!
haters gonna hate
Your work is amazing!!!!!!!!!!! Keep on stacking! Making this against the law is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard!
Stressful as it must have been you’re better for it.
If this hadn’t happened, me and a lot of other people would never have seen your amazing works of art.
I love what you do and am always inspired by the natural world in my art. I must try this myself in my backyard by the pond. It’s the perfect expression of life around us and how finding the balance can be achieved!
I too would like to learn the art of rock stacking and I shall try. :)
Congratulations on your recent victory and thanks for all the great work you do.
Here because of the cops. :) read the article just now.
Huge supporter! Been stacking in Clear Creek and Coal Creek for over a year now. Would love to get together sometime and stack. Called the Boulder County Attorney’s Office, they will NOT be enforcing their unjust law beginning Monday! From one stacker to another, Congrats Brother!
Léa Blanchet meilleur que nous :(
You work enriches the world, especially Boulder!
I am one of those new followers and am fascinated by your work. Glad the situation with the authorities is worked out and we can focus on your amazing creations.
Keeping going – u create beautiful work
…surely, the best is yet to come. Balance fascinates me. I am a Libra, and can’t walk the curb steadily…..go figure! I do yoga and deep breathing, but I can’t stand on tiptoe without leaning and swating, LOL! Thanks for making up for my lack of stable Chi!
You Rock! lol ;)
your art speaks to me
Really!!! Do Boulder police seriously think this is a crime and they cannot look for real criminals? I’m ashamed of this city’s government, a city I dearly love. You just keep doing what you’re doing because it’s all part of the Peace movement. Rock on brother! !
Whatever arises, love that.
Glad the police decided you could not hurt the rocks!!!
I love what you do. First saw an artist here in SF make a sculpture like yours, and my mind was blown. You’ve taken this technique to a whole new level…and I love & admire your work. Keep going from your heart and you can’t go wrong.:)
As always a feast for the eyes!!
Your videos and stone structures instill an enormous sense of peace …. they are beautiful in their own right and are also metaphors for material and social relations … they also send my imagination soaring … thank you
Keep on keeping on!
So glad everything has worked out OK for you. I have been following you for a long time, happy to see you have more followers to enjoy your artistry.
Lovin’ you all the way from North Carolina, where I was introduced to your work by a friend in Ohio. Your reach is far and wide. Thank you for what you do. <3
Thank you so much for sharing your passion <3
I’m just hoping that this didn’t create a grudge. Keep stacking, Obi-Wan!!
You are an inspiration to those of us that balance rocks on the shores of Lake Michigan in Wisconsin. Thank you.
We are helping ourselves… :)
I believe your city should erect a special spot in the city park, for your art – whereby you return regularly to demonstrate!
one of my mantras throughout this entire practice!
Thats’s only the beginning pal!
Your art is so amazing, how is it possible that there are people against it?!
Ce que tu fais est si beau que c’est nous qui sommes enchantés, encore bravo !!!!!!!
Oh, one last thing…don’t let the Nay-Sayers dissuade you, especially the ones with badges.
they never will. :)
Michael, I’ve been one of your followers for quite some time now, and you never cease to amaze me. As a fellow balance artist, I know the reward you get from just the accomplishment, let alone the cheers you hear from the masses. I consider myself honored to have been able to come along for the ride during your amazing journey and watch as you broaden folks insight into the world of balance. Thank you for what you do, and for the inspiration you give to those of us brave enough to attempt the near impossible.
Thought this was difficult before i saw ur stuff…

No pressure at all. Just keep doing what you’ve been doing in your own time.
i’m just kidding!! :)) but thanks for the reminder… i’m pretty sure i’d continue the same process whether it was 100 or 100K followers! :) i’m mostly just obsessed with rocks and the world will just have to deal with it! :D
