In the last post, I showed one photo with many of the rock art I had done in recent weeks. That photo elicited a lot of interest and questions and so I thought I would post some individual pieces of rock art and answer some of the questions:
First, as for rocks, I use a combination of found rocks from beaches and commercial rocks purchased from landscape shops. For creating art, I use a combination of inks, fluid acrylics and various types of pens and brushes. Typically, each piece of art will take about 4-5 hours to complete. I use rocks of various sizes. The one below is about 3" x 2" and is placed in a deep square frame like a shadow box.
This one below was inspired by the cairns I saw at Cadillac mountain in Maine. I glued the painted rocks to create a stack and is about 4" tall.
Below are a few rocks painted with my favorite subject, birds.
I love painting on these little substrates. The beauty of this art form is that you can make it as simple or as detailed as you want. They also make nice affordable art.
If you want to know more, please do not hesitate to contact me.
You can view more of these at my Etsy shop. Starting from December 1, I am offering free domestic (US) shipping on all items in the shop.
Thanks for visiting. Linked to Paint Party Friday. Thanks to Eva and Kristin for hosting.
