Summer Art–Rock Painting

LKennedy.RockPainting003A few weeks ago, my nephew, his wife and their four children made the trek to Minnesota for a little “Up North” fun.

After collecting rocks on The St. Croix River, we spent several happy hours creating painted rocks to trade and share.

I even had my portrait painted–see rock above…

Painted RocksWith only a few days–gasp!!–yes, days left before the kids return to school, you might enjoy this little pastime. (If you don’t have kids…it’s still fun…)

  1. I LOVE YOUR PORTRAIT!! I also love children! I’ve been vacationing in the Pequot lakes area for the month of August. I had family and my daughter’s friends visit. Mostly, I’ve been on my own quilting!! I love MN lakes and have vacationed here for 30+ years. MN has the best quilt shops. I absolutely love the shop in Brainard and I think I’ll be returning in Nov. for a HQ Quilting Retreat. Most of my days here are filled with sewing, spending time at the lake and walks on Paul Bunyon Trail. I wish I lived in MN, too! 🙂

  2. Fun stuff. I painted rock back in the70’s (high school). They were my Christmas gifts to friends & family. I wonder if anyone still has theirs. She doesn’t have it anymore but my mom still talks about the one I gave her. It had a cross and chalice to rep her Catholic failth.

We'd LOVE to hear! Please reply...
