Hello , here in the Villages rock painting has become a big thing. The children seem to love to find these rocks. I stumbled upon the rock painting on face book so have been trying my hand at it.

Lots of rocks.
Since I have more than enough rocks I can paint to my hearts delight.
you can buy rocks at Home Depot or Lowe’s.
Here are a couple before I get them sealed. If you spray them with a clear coat they will last longer. I used acrylic on some or just sharpies. Sharpies come in fine and ultra fine, with lots of fun colors. They also have pen paints. You can do stickers if you want. Make sure you seal them good.
Here are a few more. It’s a fun little thing to do. Make sure you hide them, but not too hard so the children can find them. I make sure I sign them along with the year I painted them. These will go out this week .
here is a hibiscus I painted on one with a group of ladies.
love to paint birds on them. They make me smile.
Little flower rockin’. After I sprayed this one it ran a bit. Still turned out pretty.
