Gemini River Rocks

I found Gemini River Rocks and just had to do a blog feature about it. I love art and painting, it has always been a passion of mine. When I came across these hand painted rocks I was so amazed by the detail on such a small item most being about 2 x 1 1/2 inch, I had to share it.

I took these words from Gemini River Rocks profile as I don't think I could have said it any better...

Late Bloomer

After raising children, practicing physical therapy for 40 years, exploring my place in the world, and examining what I can offer, it comes as pure joy to discover painting. I bring a life’s perspective and history, a delight in shape and color, and develop my skills with a local iconographer.

My miniature scenes and contemplative art on stone, paper, and wood are painted with acrylics and egg tempera. Being small, the work invites scrutiny, and establishes intimacy. Universal themes evoke common memories, while personal details reflect other people’s stories. My deepest intention is to expose goodness
Take some time to visit Gemini River Rocks to see more of her beautiful artwork

Thanks for the link, and the feature. It's always nice to see what other artists are doing. And so nice to see one using materials at hand!
