Today I dedicated some hours to art. I painted some rocks with a background on which I will then draw the Viking runes, which I like so much, and then put the colored rocks on the large rectangular vases in front of my house, which are the only ones not dug up by my dogs. It's nice to paint rocks because each of them has a different porosity and each one absorbs the colour, enhances it or dampens it. However today is a sunny day and I put all my rocks out in the open to dry.
When we talk about rock art, we are talking about an ancient art born from cave painting and as the name suggests, it involves the creation of designs and shapes on stones. Drawing on stone, in prehistoric times, was a way of expressing oneself even before the invention of writing. Today, coloring pictures on stones has taken on a whole new aspect, becoming a fun hobby for enthusiasts, a group activity, a job for artists but also an original experience for young children and teenagers.

    I have never really pondered the significance of rocks…. Until now.
    And all I know of Vikings, I learned from the TV Show with Katheryn Winnick.

    Great Post.

    One of them look like a cucumber. The one with several veins on it…

    I used to paint rocks I had found on the beaches in Michigan. They would be used for door stops, paper weights, or just as decorations. I don’t know how good they were, but painting them was very therapeutic.
