It was a painting of blue and yellow flowers in a basket. My parents absolutely cherished it and put it on display on an image stand in their living room. It is still there today in 2011, almost 40 years after the fact! Painting on rocks is an enjoyment craft and leisure activity for all ages. You don’t need to be a Picasso and you don’t need to even paint well to make a beautiful stone artwork. Probably the best thing about work of art flowers and plants on rocks is that almost any size, shape and sort of rock can be used, from the smoothest and roundest of river rocks, the sporadic shapes of field stones that you can discover at your nearby stone place (in the “misfit” heap at discounted costs), to even the stout uneven rocks you may discover at a structure site or out and about. Rocks are all over the place!
Probably the nicest thing about work of art flowers on a stone is that if you don’t care for how it’s turning out you can simply wash the paint off and start once more until you like what you see. You can also use a stencil to manage your artistic creation which really helps. As I would see, everything painted rocks are as special and remarkable as the people who create them. They make beautiful unique gifts that just about anybody would appreciate. I love to paint on the earth (rocks), it makes me feel as however I am lighting up the world in some small way and the magnificent thing about flowers (and fairies and angels) painted on rocks is that they last until the end of time!
