You paint rocks?
Yes, I’ve heard this a few times and if you enjoy this activity chances are you have heard it too. While painting rocks has become popular in recent years, the practice has actually been done for much, much longer.
“As far as I know, painted pebbles date from the period of the late Ice Age and beginning of the Holocene, “ says Ingo Kraft, of the Archaeological Heritage Office located in Dresden, Germany.

I hope you’ll give this art form a try regardless of your skill level. I‘ll be posting soon with tips to start your own rock painting practice.
