Heart Shaped Rock

Tati's Heart Shaped Rock

In college, my roommates and I would walk to the beach together, gathering rocks. There were so many, varying all shapes, sizes, colors and patterns. We began noticing many that were heart shaped, then our collections became more specific. 
This past weekend, I found another heart shaped rock in Malibu, while walking my pup on the beach. It made me think of Tati, one of my beloved college roommates. So I grabbed it and painted it for her. I sent it off in the mail yesterday, and cant wait until she gets it- sending lots of lover her way. 

There is a theme here... Birds with Words.

Mom's Rock

Mom's Rock : Christmas 2011

A gift for my mother this year was a rock, this rock to be exact. On the 24th, my family took a stroll on the beach in Malibu. Mom found this rock and told me to paint it. So, I did, and gave it right back to her for Christmas. She loved it. Thanks for the inspiration Momma!
Painting rocks is my new hobby. Found canvases are the best, to me. They are unique and can add life to whatever you create on them. I love nature, and intertwining it with artwork. 

more to come...
