Rock #27 You Can Move Mountains

I got this idea from Pinterest. GJ Rocks & Art Treasures Abandonment Originally abandoned outside of Rib City in Grand Junction.

Rocks #26 Gel Pen Flower on light rock

I was asked to use the gel pens by Shuttle Art on a White rock to see how they work.  I found the lightest rock that I had and tried them out. It turned out pretty good. #GJRATA GJ Rocks & Art Treasures Abandonment This was originally abandoned at the mall near a tree in the parking lot near JC Penney.

Rock #25 Gel Pen Flower


This one I was experimenting with my gel pens from Shuttle Art.  The first picture I had drawn the flower directly to the rock.  I thought it would look cute with a pearl finish, but when I covered it, it smeared.  So I painted with the pearl finish and then drew on top of the pearl finish for the second picture. #GJRATA GJ Rocks & Art Treasures Abandonment This rock was originally abandoned in the parking lot of Texas Roadhouse.

Rock #20 I see you

I got this idea from Pinterest.  It makes me think of the phrase, "You can do hard things." You can break out of whatever hard things try to hold you back and do they things that truely make you happy! #GJRATA GJ Rocks & Art Treasures Abandonment

I can't believe you are giving these away!

I was painting rocks on Saturday when my husband came in and said "Painting some more rocks?" He then looked over and saw the one with lots of trees and said "I really like that one. I can't believe you are just giving these away." I sure hope that the rocks bring happiness to the finders! #GJRATA GJ Rocks & Art Treasures Abandonment.

Rock #14 City Scape

This is a city scape that I did. I got the idea from Pinterest.  It was originally painted in a glossy pick color.  I then added some blue, turquiose, and purple to make the sky.  Some white for the clouds.  Then the black for the city scape.  I used white dotting method for the windows on the buildings. GJ Rocks & Art Treasures Abandonment #GJRATA This was originally abandonded on my morning walk near my house in the neighborhood just north of mine.

Rock #13 Turtle

I used the extra paint from Rock #9 to paint the background on this one.  I was thinking of doing a palm beach scene, but Melody suggested I do a turtle.  Since I love turtles, that is what it became.  I looked for turtle ideas on Pinterest and came up with this one.  I absolutlely love the way it turned out.
