Rocks can be painted to achieve all of these garden art styles and more - whimsy, magic, personality, love of animals, seasonal, classical, funky, etc.
For instance, you can express your whimsical nature with a cute, painted rock critter that hides among the foliage and flowers.
Can you imagine a painted rock alligator's head peeking from underneath your garden foliage? Do you think it would attract attention to your garden and cause a closer look?
Take a peek at how an alligator's head painted on a rock added subtle whimsy to these gardens.
|What is this critter doing in my garden?|
|Is this alligator alive?|
|Are those day lilies growing out of that alligator rock?|
|Can this alligator smell the roses (er, daisies)?|
With a little acrylic paint and imagination, rocks can be transformed into garden art that's either fun & whimsical or beautiful & decorative. Painted rocks are always unique and one-of-a-kind because of shape, texture, and paint technique.
Why not forego cookie cutter, machine-made garden decor and try some painted rocks in your garden this year?
